India is believed to be one of the oldest centers of indigo dying, dating its use back to 3300 BC. Indigo made its way to the Greeks and Romans from India and was valued as a luxury product. Today we know it as the dye of blue jeans but in ancient times it was associated with political power or religious ritual, since the plants used to extract the gorgeous blue color were once rare. There are a variety of plants in the Indigo genus, native to the tropics, which can provide Indigo color. Learn more about the natural dye process and Indigo legacy in India from CHAI Studio owner, Amerjit Ghag, at the workshop!
