This article was posted by AMIR 1 year, 5 months, 4 weeks, 16 hours, 6 minutes ago.

Indigofera is a plant that is responsible for creating the beautiful indigo pigment used around the world. Although, the plant is not used exclusively to make the dye, a key ingredient has been passed down centuries in many corners of the world. Catherine Legrand documented the lengthy process of the old world techniques of indigo dying. Starting in Japan, Legrand traveled all the way to Central America to research different cultures who utilize this beautiful natural dye. This hardback book is published by Thames & Hudson, and is filled with 510 full color photos over 288 pages. Check your local bookshop or order your copy by quoting the ISBN 9780500516607.
