ndigo dyeing / 'JAPAN BLUE'.
The one and only natural blue. The blue of natural indigo dyeing, which is also good for the environment, is a blue of the earth that blends with nature and cannot be expressed using chemical dyes or artificial materials. The appeal of indigo dyeing is not only its beautiful appearance and feel on the skin. Since ancient times, indigo has supported people's lives as a medicinal herb with many beneficial effects. The leaves and seeds have such medicinal properties that they are used as a detoxifier for pufferfish poisoning and as an antipyretic, while indigo-dyed fabrics and clothing have an insect repellent effect that keeps insects and snakes at bay, a warm deodorising and heat-retaining effect that prevents the smell of sweat, and a UV-protection effect that protects the skin. Recently, its antibacterial properties against atopic dermatitis have also attracted considerable attention.
