Our indigo garden
We have some collaborators in Milan and in Amsterdam where they coltivate our indigo plants. We start to havest the indigo leaves to extract indigo pigment from July until September when indigo leaves reach maximum pigmentation. And we apply these pigments as much as possible for our workshop. Our goal is that we spread our indigo field throughout Europe and create a sustainable system together with our collaborator.
We propose two different Japanese dyeing techniques: the Shibori, the traditional Japanese tie-dye, and the Kata using stencil and rice paste to apply figurative design on fabric. In both techniques, our natural indigo will be used for colouring the fabric. The duration of these workshop is 3-4 hours each.
Every month we collect your clothes and dye them with natural blue indigo. So that your clothes will get new value with a new life. The more you dye, the deeper the blu you obtain. This way your garments get a second chance. From this moment your clothes get into the loop of the circular economy and can start their new life!
