Indigo Days…

_IGP5145

i had these 3 pieces of hand-spun and hand-woven cotton
dyed with indigo when we were up in bali.
it was a last minute idea and the lovely javanese man who did it for me
didn't have the time to rinse the dye out…
so he told me how to do it when i get home.

i placed the cloths in a tub and filled it with water

and then spent 20 min pulling the cloths out of the water…

after hanging the cloths up to try
i thought why not throw a few old white cotton shirts into the blue water?
and a white scarf??
and some silk thread???
