Artisanal hand indigo dyed, Lan Yin Hua Bu also known as Katazome
Our natural calico cotton is thick yet soft and comfortable and good for skin contact over long periods. Traditionally 100% natural indigo has a natural anti bacterial quality. We cannot guarantee that our fabric can have this continued antibacterial effect but natural plant dyes are better against the skin and to breath through then synthetic fabrics and dyes. Google search on antibacterial effects of natural indigo.
The deep indigo cotton face covering is hand-made using plant-dyed natural calico cotton dyed using an ancient resist paste pattern making method, by a traditional and recognised Indigo Master and his family. As with all of our artisanal products, they are ethical and sustainable.
Please see our on line and instagram videos for how it’s made. Because of these natural processes, and ethical practices this product is a sustainable fashion item.
