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.
Delphine Dress Linen Indigo Dyed
Men's Oceanus Vneck Bamboo Indigo Dyed
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.

We are posting a blog post from Sarah over at Hum.life because it's a beautiful post on creating a home practice.
Yoga classes are excellent places to learn the poses and sequences, to find the correct alignment for your body, and to find inspiration. But as renowned teacher Rodney Yee says*, “Without making it your own, yoga doesn’t mean anything. It’s just an exercise class.”
What is mindful living? Part 1 - Self
Mindful living is a holistic way of living your life. It extends from your self, body, mindset, spirit to your immediate loved ones, friends, to your community human and non human, to the natural environment you live in, to the larger world we are a part of and to the effects of our choices on people and places we don't have an obvious contact with. In Part 1 we explore our self.
