NATURAL INDIGO DYE

Japanese Indigo (Persicaria tinctoria) is from the plant called tade (smartweed in English). It is fermented and becomes the base for the dye called sukumo.

This Indigo dye is natural and is said to act as an insect repellant, anti-bacterial, and shields against sunburn.

We extract the dye from the Indigo Crystals and hand dye each item making sure it gets the attention and care it deserves. All created in our home studio.
