Indigo pigment extracted from plants is not soluble in water. In order to dissolve, it has to be reduced (oxygen has to be removed from the dye vat by adding sugar) and the pH needs to be shifted to 9-11pH (with lime). The reduced vat is yellow, not blue. The dissolved dye attaches then to the fibres under the surface of the liquid. When taken out and exposed to oxygen, it turns blue again and bonds with the fibres. The dye is permanent, light- and wash fast - when kept away from direct sun exposure.
Made by hand in Berlin with sustainable ingredients. No toxic substances or chemicals were used in the process and all fibres and dyes are plant-based.
