It started in Toulouse, in the heart of the country of Cocagne, where a beautiful tint of blue, the European ancestor of indigo, was developed over 500 years ago. It is this blue from the pastel flower (also called Woad) that is in the heart of all Bleu De Cocagne's creations.
Pastel is one of the oldest dyes, it was already used by the Celts who painted their faces in blue to frighten the romans. The Cocagne is the ball of pastel leaves (also called Woad) which gives this unique blue colour noble and natural, derived from techniques of ancestral dyes.
In France, this culture and tradition of dyeing existed from the 11th century in the Amiens region. The legendary country of Cocagne and Toulouse is at the heart of European blue trade. however the arrival of indigo imported from India then industrial dyes were to almost eradicate the use of Woad.
Today, in partnership with artisans based in Picardy, blue workshop of cocagne® is proud to reintroduce these unique shades of blue. Today Bleu De Cocagne collaborate with a craftswoman based in Picardy. This is where the "woad" (terms used in Picardy for pastel) is grown and where they carry out most of their dying.
