About the Dye:

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 as anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidative, antitumor, antimutagenic, anticonvulsant, gastroprotective and has hepatoprotective activities.





The cotton used is native to the Costa Chica of Oaxaca and Guerrero. It is heritage white and coyuchi cotton (brown color) from 35 small producers from 12 coastal communities of Oaxaca. The farmers participate in a program for ecological production and the increase of biodiversity in their plots.
