Indigo in South East Asia…. Guest Blogger: Penny Peters

June 29, 2016

This is the third and last in the series of 3 blogs about Indigo. Gail

Recently I had the opportunity to visit Indigo Dyers in South East Asia. The Hmong people use wax resist (batik) on their fabrics prior to dyeing in indigo. This results in very fine patterns which are then partially appliqued and cross stitched. I have photographed their beautiful pleated skirts made in this way. Have a look at the video named Motifs and Meanings that features two Hmong artists as they explain their methods of working.  Other people in South East Asia use tie dyeing to create patterns in their indigo dyed cloth. Enjoy the slides of my trip.
