Indigo is one of the oldest dyes in the world, with a complex extraction process that has led to its moniker of ‘blue gold’. Natural indigo is a fascinating, temperamental dye that requires patience and practice. The study of indigo could fill a lifetime of exploration, learning and discovery.

Natural indigo is a healing dye with regenerative qualities, meaning that it gives back to the earth, creating a cycle of positive impact.

The Nila Indigo 02 Craft Box comes with a complete set of DIY tools and an instruction guide to help you set-up  and maintain a studio vat to use for indigo dye experiments. The box also includes tools that can be further used for experiments with Itajime or clamp-resist shibori, Arashi shibori and the Indian tie-dye or Bandhani. The craft box is suitable for beginners as well as experienced dyers, for easy studio experiments.
