indigo

out in the middle on nowhere, somewhere near jaipur in india but far from home, there is a small town that still prints with mud and then indigo dyes the fabric. not many people left doing this trade, not many at all. let me introduce you to some of them.

    Oh my goodness, what wonderful photos!! I just love the colours and the intricate patterns of the fabrics, so wonderful to see this way of printing being done. I would want to bring so much fabric back with me.
