Indigo Cloth

Indigo Cloth is usually woven by men and dyed by women. The indigo colour is obtained from plant sources - indigofera plant and the indigo vine. Dried balls of crushed leaves are left to ferment before they are mixed with an alkaline solution to produce the dye. The cotton cloth is repeatedly immersed into the dye to darken the colour. Afterwards the textile is hand-beaten to fasten the colour.
