  • Cochineal is among the most ancient and versatile natural dyes on the planet.
  • It has excellent light- and washfastness properties and produces a beautiful range of reds, scarlets, violets, fuchsias and purples.
  • Permanent on all natural fibers, cochineal is used like an acid dye or with a mordant such as alum.
  • The color (carminic acid) comes from the bodies of female insects of the species Dactylopius coccus.
  • The insects are farmed on the prickly pear cactus (nopal), which is native to Mexico, Central and South America.
  • Jacquard’s Cochineal comes directly from a small, family-owned and operated organic farm co-op outside Lima, Peru.


  • All natural fibers including: cotton, linen, silk, canvas, hemp, wool, wood and more
