INDIGO, a most precious blue.
Discover the unique history of natural indigo during the Indigo Festival 2019!
In both past and present, all over the world, how is this distinct blue achieved? Through exhibitions, workshops and lectures, the extraordinary story of indigo, as a natural dye and cultural relevance will be revealed. Immerse yourself in the essence of indigo, focusing on local natural dyers as well as ecological considerations surrounding the processes. We will also consider an array of cultures with their unique habits, music, clothing and rich stories all in relation to this colour.
On the 30th anniversary of gallery Indigo, we will pay tribute to this rich world heritage with the hope that it will not disappear. We will do this with the support of many local businesses of Damme. Indigo is not just a colour dye, it is a most precious blue…
