Indigo Tie Dye Kit
User-friendly kit makes for an impactful demo or workshop

Indigo is not only a famous color, it’s also an incredibly unique dye that occurs in plants found all over the world. Used for millennia (you may have seen recent headlines pushing the earliest known use to 3,000 BCE in Peru!), it is still used to color every pair of blue jeans today. Indigo has a fascinating history, and the dyeing process is magical. Its unique properties make it especially well-suited for creating resist patterns on fabric.

The Jacquard Indigo Tie Dye Kit makes indigo dyeing easier than ever. A little goes a long way: Jacquard’s kit provides enough dye to color up to 15 yards of fabric or 15 adult t-shirts! As a group activity, indigo dyeing is always a hit. CLICK HERE to download Cassie Bremher’s beautifully done instructional on how to lead an impactful indigo dyeing workshop in your apartment or store, no experience required!
