Houses of Parliament Indigo Fabric
There are multiple people involved in creating each Indigo dyed fabric made at Kofar Mata Dye pits, many designs are intricately tied and woven by women at home, then dyed by men at the ancient dye pits.
The Houses of Parliament design has been carefully tied and woven to create multiple circles in a tight spiral pattern.
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.
