If there is ONE colour that transcends time and space, that sparks love and imagination, it is Indigo.
Its history is as rich and soulful as the colour itself.
It originated in Japan and is similar to tie dying in that you create unique randomly creative patterns by tying, clipping, and folding the fabric so part of the dye doesn’t reach it.
For thousands of years, the darkest shades of Indigo blue were sought by sea and by land, and indigo itself was part and parcel of the wars and uprisings that took place not just where it grew, but to secure its possession. This colour is exceptionally lightfast, and when properly dyed is also surprisingly wash-fast.
