Indigo is the world‟s only natural blue dye. At the industry level, indigo dye reduced in high alkalinity using sodium dithionite is of significant importance. However, the process is environmentally unfriendly. This study focuses on the experimentation of indigo dyeing using different natural reducing agents. Experiments using various parameters are carried out and different fruits are tested for the reduction potential with the recipe proportion of 1:2:3 (Quantity of indigo powder: calcium hydroxide: reducing agent). The results revealed that different blue shades are able to be produced using different reducing agent, while crystalline fructose is the strongest reducing agent. The finding from the experiments has resulted in the creation of a sustainable indigo project in producing apparel products. A collection of women Ready-To-Wear fashion is produced at the end of this research. This research showed that the use of different reducing agents induced a more ecological way of indigo dyeing.
