Indigo originated many centuries ago in India and made its way to Africa through ancient trade routes. A wide range of hues from the palest blue to deep rich blues is achievable by master artisans. Fresh indigo leaves or balls of crushed dried leaves are steeped in vats of wood ash lye in the ground. Dying cotton, silk and other materials is a time-consuming process that takes patience as achieving the desired color may take repeated steeping.
Patterns are created using a stitch-resist method which requires hundreds or thousands of tight knots that must be tied and untied by hand. Designs have been used for centuries and are different based on their region. Standing looms are used to weave narrow strips of cotton cloth which are then stitched together to create larger swaths of material.
