Fustic or Old Fustic (Maclura tinctoria) is a medium to large tree originally found in the forests of Brazil and the West Indies. The dye comes from the heartwood of the tree. Old fustic was used extensively from about 1600 to 1850, as it produces a strong colour at low cost. During WW1, fustic was one of the main dyes used to produce khaki for army uniforms
