Once in a Blue Moon..... Indigo Dye Limited Edition

Last month on the Full Blue Moon, Zen Nomad teamed up with Spontaneous Atelier for our inaugural natural dye adventures.  Naturally we selected Indigo natural dye for this limited run batch.

Infusing the natural dye session with the beautiful full moon intentions.  Nicole set out a lovely alter to honour the indigo.

Indigo comes from the fermentation of indigo fern shrubs that grow wild in the tropics.

Then everything went into the dye pots. Everything must be eased in with the greatest of care in order to not disturb the dye.

Everything into the indigo pot

Although when you are first drawing the items out of the indigo pot they are green, but as they are exposed to air through the oxygenation they turn to the beautiful living colour of indigo.
