For those of us who have had the pleasure of dyeing with indigo there is a beauty and magic to this natural dye, derived from the indigo plant. If you work with indigo, you don't just dye with it, you have a relationship with it. It is a complicated dye that takes years to master. Indigo is not just a colour; it is a slow process to produce the colour and dye with it. Dyers can (and do) spend years dedicated to just this one colour because of its amazing qualities.
