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.
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.
One of Nicole's items she had dyes previously in indigo with the newly dyed Zen Nomad items trying below.
So below are the limited edition Blue Moon indigo series now available.
So we release these Blue Moon Indigo Dyed items that infused for a month leading up to this celebration of Solstice, the longest day of the year, with love from us to you.

Gift giving over the holidays, it can take on many perspectives. One of pressure, rushing, obligation... Or we can choose to enter the season with an opportunity to think of the ones we love and how we can gift a little thoughtful magic into their lives.
Giving gifts with thought and love, is a meditation on the person, what would bring them a feeling of being seen and appreciated.
Ethical fashion focuses on the social and environmental impacts of the production process.
"Traditional fashion has become a sore spot on our cultural evolution, through it’s monoculture of style, its whirlwind collections of trends that date styles in a couple of weeks (fast fashion), and creating excessive waste. The very production processes of fast fashion is appalling in its social and environmental effects. " Techcrunch
I would rather have each piece of clothing I wear have meaning, a story, a unique quality, that weave throughout seasons and time without being dated by trendiness.
