Indigo tones explained by the master textile dyers in Mali: To produce indigo dye from the green indigo leaves is a long and exacting process. The vat can be kept alive for months if it is carefully nurtured, over time, the blues obtained become lighter and increasingly luminous. Dark indigo can be achieved best by multiple dips in a young vat, but real light icy blues are far more difficult and depend on an old, well-maintained vat.
The tie-and-dye process is exactly that: there are hundreds of different ways to tie a fabric before you dip it to get hundreds of patterns.
