OPUS HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2020 Let us help you find the perfect gift for an artist in your life with our curated selection of exceptional gifts! EXPLORE THE GIFT GUIDE Slide THE LEGEND OF ROSE MADDER Rose madder is a distinctive rose-coloured pigment made from the roots of the common madder plant, Rubia tinctorum. A natural organic lake pigment, it was first used as a dye for fabrics. Evidence of its use can be found in ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian cloths as far back as 1500 BC. Cloth dyed with madder root pigment was even found in the tomb of Tutankhamun.
