Emir Palace Indigo Fabric
The Kofar Mata Dye pits are home to many artisans who carefully produce the fabric we know and love. Many designs first start at home where women intricately tie and weave the cotton fabric, they are then taken to the dye pits to be dyed by the men.
The Emir Palace design is named after the Emir palace that resides nearby to the Kofar Mata Dye Pit. It has been tied and woven to exhibit a loose spiral.
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.
