Special Three Basket Indigo Fabric
There are many designs of fabrics created at the Kofar Mata Dye Pits. Each piece is hand tied and woven by women at home then given to the men who dye the fabric in the ancient pits.
This special three basket design has been sewn carefully to create a beautiful circular matrix within the "Three Baskets" design. It takes 5 days to create and one mistake will ruin the pattern and won't be discovered until after it has been dyed.
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.
