Natural Indigo Tie-Dyed Shibori Print Tee Shirt
Women's Size L
Natural Indigo was used to tie-dye this 100% cotton tee shirt in the shibori style. Natural indigo has beautiful tonal depth and has no comparison to chemical dyes. Natural indigo is revered because of the color intensity and how it ages over time on dyed textiles. Each piece is unique and special, and each tone of indigo represents one layer of submersion in the dye bath.
Inspired to create indigo tie-dyed tee-shirts after seeing the plethora of fast-fashion tie-dyed loungewear sets trending during coronavirus on social media I set out to learn the process virtually from local artisans and small business suppliers.
Indigo dying is a slow and methodical process and the idea of spending my quarantine time creating the vat, tending to the vat and purposefully creating designs was exciting.
I was most intrigued by the natural dye process with earthy tones and brighter, more lively colors.
Because this is a hand dyed process this is a unique one of a kind tee. The photos shown here represent the exact tee you will receive.
