I was inspired by Melony Bradley’s Indigo project above – so much so that I ordered a kit. It arrived yesterday and I cannot wait to play with it.
Everything you need to get started is in the kit. I am going to the thrift store today to find somethings to dye. I can’t wait to get started – so excited about its arriveal I had to blog about it before I even begin. So, stay tuned for next weeks post. Indigo dying dates back to the ancient societies of Greece and Rome when India supplied this form of hand dying to the early Europeans. It is believed to be the oldest form of hand dying and arguably the most beautiful. Jacquard’s Indigo Tie Dye kit comes with everything you will need to produce beautiful results. The one pound package is enough to dye 15 t-shirts and can be reserved by storing in a 5 gallon bucket with a tight fitting lid, easily found at many home improvement centers.
