Bride and Groom Indigo Fabric
There are many people needed to create each Indigo dyed fabric made at Kofar Mata Dye pits. Several of the intricate designs are tied and woven by women at home, then dyed by men at the ancient dye pits.
The Bride and Groom design is a tight spiral followed by pattern of circles and spirals. This pattern is specific for weddings.
Due to all fabrics being hand tied and hand dyed, there may be slight variation between batches and patterns.

With freshly dyed indigo, there will be a "rub off" of excess indigo, leaving your hands blue.
After the initial wash the colour transfer will be minimal as the indigo has been fixed during a process at the dye pits.
Over a period of time, indigo will fade similar to dark denim.
