Went into the back room and hunted down my herbal dyes book.
Apparently Indigo will work on Wool as well so there's a chance that
it'll work on askin.... but it's not suggesting leather..... it says
that the prefered additives are caustic soda (Sodium Hydroxide) and
sodium hydrosulfite..... Though I haven't cross referenced either of
them to find out if there's a skin safe way of getting the dye in
solution..... Though the book is rather vague but it references
another more indepth text.... if anyone has access to a good library
(unlike mine) and feels up to a little leg work....

Dye Plants and Dyeing, A special printing of Plants & Gardens vol 20,
no. 3. Brooklyn, New York,: Brooklyn Botanic Garden 1964
