Containing twenty one colours this scarf was inspired by a very special yarn used in part to create it, that we collected on a trip to Kyoto. Hand dyed indigo silk made in an Indigo Dyers workshop run by the same family for many generations.
Natural Indigo has been regarded as a coveted dye for centuries all over the world. Japanese Indigo is taken from the "Tade" plant, unique to Japan and is famous for giving a particularly rich and full colour. I was particularly interested to find out that the indigo dye also repels insects, snakes and some bacteria which made it the perfect for centuries of use in the countryside and cities.
