Indigo—a Mini-guide to Growing and Dyeing with the Mother of Blues by: Chrsti Johnson

This 14 page book is intended to be an introduction to working with indigo. Natural dyeing is an art form that is currently being revived, many traditions and techniques have been lost since the introduction of synthetic dyes, which were more economical and predictable. Because of this, many master dyers abandoned these ancient techniques or were not able to pass them on. 

Indigo is a plant with an extensive history throughout humanity, being worked with as a dye by many cultures across the globe. Presented here is an introduction to working with indigo in all stages from plant to powder, and a brief history of its use around the world.

This book is just the beginning of the story, meant to inspire you to learn more on the topic, but also provide the guidance and information you need to start dyeing with indigo, and growing indigo in a home garden. It includes recipes for dyeing with purchased indigo as well as dyeing with home-grown fresh leaves, and lots of references and recommendations for learning more.
