    INDIGO 

    - Indigofera Suffruticosa- is a native plant to Mexico. Our indigo dye comes from the Istmo region of Oaxaca and is produced by a family that still preserves the knowledge of the alchemy how to create the plant dye. The blue color that fascinates people from different cultures is also called as 'the king of dyes'.  The plant belongs to pea family and makes the plantation soil better.  In traditional medicine it is known to have also many balancing activities.

     

     

    BROWN

    Native un-dyed brown cotton (coyuche) from the coast of Oaxaca. 100% organic cotton which is hand spun into yarn with traditional technique.
