Responsibly sourced botanical indigo dye
Today, nearly all indigo dye is produced synthetically on a mass-scale. The Hmong of Northern Vietnam, however, still concoct the pigment manually from locally grown indigo plants. The colour is pressed from the leaves and fermented, before being mixed with lime and various natural additions to make the resultant paste soluble. The mixture is oxidised, then combined with ash water, fruit sugars and rice whiskey to aid with a second fermentation. Once this is complete, the dye is ready for use. Depending on how dark the artisan wants to make the material, repeated dyeing and drying may be required.
