Indigo is one of the colours of the rainbow, as easily recognised as it is fashionable. It is one of the key colours of 2014, equally likely to be seen in homewares, lifestyle magazines and the fashion press. From its origins as a naturally produced dye, most common in India, to its ubiquitous appearance in blue jeans today, indigo has travelled far and wide. Nicola Gouldsmith shows you how to use indigo to dye fabric in different ways, including dip-dyeing, tie-dyeing, batik, shibori and arashi,as well as basic plain dyeing. She then shows you how to use the result of your dyeing to make beautiful items to wear and for the home, such as a tie-dyed t-shirt, a batik wall hanging and a dip-dyed shawl. With the help of the clear step-by-step instructions for each project, and techniques sections explaining the various methods of dyeing and any sewing or other skills needed, you will soon be able to create your own indigo world.
