Madder root is harvested from the first-year taproots of a climbing vine related to the coffee plant that's better known as Common Madder or Dyer's Madder.

Madder root has been used for centuries to produce a red dye to color wool, cotton, leather and other textiles. Depending on the type of mordant used to extract and “fix” the dye, various shades can be obtained, from saffron to turkey red and madder lake.
