Indigo, which was used to make dyes for clothing, , was brought to the southern colonies of British North America and made profitable by Eliza Luckas Pinckney in the middle eighteenth century. Indigo, an indigenous commodity of the Middle East and South Asia, was brought to South Carolina by Pinckney, but had been cultivated in the New World at much earlier dates. Pinckey's significant contribution came in establishing a production that allowed indigo to be cultivated and produced into dyes en masse. Like contemporary plantations of the American southern colonies, indigo was cultivated with slave labor.
