Seven Northern States Indigo Fabric
The cotton fabric dyed at Kofar Mata Dye pits has been intricately tied and woven by women at home, they are then taken to be dyed at the dye pits by the men.
Seven Northern States design is synonymous with the seven hausa states. The design shows 7 circles surrounded by spirals on the cotton fabric.
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.
