Eliza's Indigo by Betsy Chutchian for Moda Fabrics

In 1739, at age 16, Eliza Lucas moved from her home in Antigua to South Carolina, where she would care for her family and manage three plantations inherited by her father. Relying on her study of botany in England, Eliza experimented with a variety of seeds, but it was with the indigo seeds sent from her father in Antigua, that Eliza found success. Widowed at age 32, Eliza continued to manage the plantations and raise her family until she died in 1793, an educated, independent business woman of colonial America.
