The dyestuff is the heartwood of a tropical tree related to the mulberry. It gives bright clear yellow when we mordant it with alum. The trees from which this dyestuff has been harvested have grown up wild in the Caribbean Island of the Dominican Republic. No tree is cut down for the harvest: only a large side branch is taken. All heartwood from the center of this branch is cleaned and planed by hand.
