From Tender Co.: "Tender has its roots in antique work clothing and machinery, particularly of the Great British Steam Age. On a steam train, the tender was the truck which carried the coal and water to power the locomotive, and was coupled in between the engine and the carriages.

”Woad is a member of the brassica family, which also includes cabbages, and is native to Europe, where it is has been cultivated since the Stone Age. While woad was grown to some extent in England, the sun and warmer temperatures of southern France meant that woad cultivated there was especially prized for its deeper, richer blue."
