Indigo is a naturally produced dye common to India. It is most familiar to us daily in our blue jeans. Nicola Gouldsmith in her book, Indigo Dye it, Make it, shows you how to use indigo to dye fabric in a variety of ways, such as dip-dyeing, batik stenciling and printing, and tie-dyeing with string, stones, wood, and tubes, as well as basic plain dyeing. She then shows you how to use the results of your dyeing to make beautiful items to wear and for the home, such as a tie-dyed t-shirt, a batik-printed roman shade, a dip-dyed shawl, and a batik-stenciled curtain. With the help of clear step-by-step instructions for each project, a techniques section in each chapter explains the various methods of dyeing with photographed steps; and a sewing techniques section explains some basic skills, so that you will soon be able to create your own indigo treasures.
