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. Medicinally it is 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.

Handwoven apparel are artisan crafted by hand from start to finish and might change slightly in size or color, contain some weavers knots, pulls or other signs about handwork. The color of naturally dyed textiles is not always equal on the whole fabric but can be darker or lighter in some parts, it can also fade when washed. Each thread dyeing and weaving also creates slightly different piece, so each cloth is unique.
