Indigo

The ancient and secretive tradition of Indigo dying, is a skill that has historically been passed down through generations. Derived from the Aizome plant also known as the Shoi, indigo is a highly transient dye that will fade and develop with time. These days it is normally associated with denim jeans but for centuries it has been seen as one of the most respected and revered skills involved within Kimono making. We have put together some items for your home and body that can help you delve into this rich and interesting world.
