To use the words of indigo textile artist Shihoko Fukumoto;
“Indigo is the colour of my dreams”
It is the colour of ours too.
Wonderful rich, inky, indigo blue. Our love affair with the iridescent pigment is unwavering. Starting with the palest blush through to deep saturated stains; natural indigo blue has been flushing the textile industry with cerulean luminosity for hundreds of years. Never out of style, Indigo is neither flashy nor retiring, but sits carefully balanced somewhere in between. Taking residence in our wardrobes, our interior decor, make up hues and artistic creations alike. Indigo blue is indeed the colour of dreams…
