After my dyeing experience in Bordeaux, i wanted to dye at home. I made a natural indigo vat, the reducer was fructose.
The first day the vat looked in a perfect condition but the blue was rather pale, even after 5 dips.
Two days later there was nu metallic shine, no flower on the surface of the vat, but the color was much deeper blue. I don't understand, there is still a lot learn about this magic indigo dyeing.
This week i will finish some children bags for the Christmas market, so next i will work with this fabric to make some bags.
