|Indigo Magic Throw Pillow – Grid Pattern $68||
Indigo + oxygen + patience = the hypnotically deep blue hue of our dip-dyed indigo pillows. In the dye vat, indigo is practically colorless, but as the fabric is lifted out and exposed to the air, it almost magically turns blue. The more the process is repeated, the darker the fabric. Handmade in Mali according to a centuries-old dye recipe. Reverses to solid blue. Envelope-style closure.
Indigo textiles are so vivid because the dye rests on the fibers rather than binding with them. With heavy wear, color can transfer onto skin or light-colored fabrics. Wash indigo items on their own, in cold water, gently, with only a little detergent (commercial “color catchers” can help), and let them dry completely before use.
