Indigo is a natural dye extracted from the leaves of plants of the Indigofera genus. It is one of the oldest dyes known to humankind. The colour achieved depends on the type of vat, the concentration of indigo, and the number of dips. It gives infinite shades of blue, from the palest summer sky to an almost purple black.
Care instructions: The pleating on silk is not permanent, it will flatten with time and wear. In order to preserve it it’s recommended to keep away from water and professional soft dry clean only. To maintain it in it’s best condition, always store the garments gently rolled-up in its fabric pouch and in a dark place to protect the colors. Indigo pieces may bleed in contact with skin or clothing.
