Moon, Stars and Cloud Indigo Fabric
The beautiful patterns on each fabric is first woven and tied at home by women. The cotton fabric is then taken to the ancient dye pits to be dyed by men using historical dying methods that have been passed down for generations.
The Moon, stars and cloud design is similar to the Moon and Stars design that symbolises a nights sky. The addition of the tie and dye lines at the side depicts the clouds.
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.
