Eleven plants
and one insect

Belgian company Lutea manufactures organic water colours in tubes from eleven plants and one insect. The plants are selected for their beautiful dyes and lightfastness (tested acc. to ISO 105-B02). This is a series for the true connoisseur of beauty and tradition.

And the insect? Of course it is the cochineal, from which we get a genuine Carmine.
