Every culture & region in the world has its own indigo dyeing art practices. Let us connect with each other through this magical plant we all share?
This is how the Indigo Shade Map Works!
Each blue icon in the map represents the three major indigo species:
- Indigofera tinctoria (African & Tropical Indigo)
- Polygonum tinctorium (Japanese, Jjok & Asian Indigo)
- Isatis tinctoria (Woad)
We've recently found other special plants used as indigo that have not been categorized under the major three listed above and are marked on the map as "Special Indigo" with a green icon.
