A beautiful blend of blue and violet, Indigo is a hue that radiates power and charm. Known to open the third eye, Indigo helps us tap into our intuition. When in the presence of Indigo, we become more in tune with our perceptions. As a result, we’re more mindful of our surroundings.

Before we dive into our main course, you should know the importance of Indigo fashion and why are we using it in our collection:
What is Indigo Fashion?
As we discussed before, Indigo is a blend of blue and violet. And when this color is combined with the clothes, it becomes something more than just fashion. It is a new trend. In fact, Indigo fashion was once considered to be as valuable as gold, especially because it feels like royalty. It adds up real value to your personality and style.
In India, Indigo fashion is our heritage which is passing through time. It begins with traditional Indian block printing. But not only block printing, but cotton dye pattern also attracts the modern era. At Shree, we have embedded the color Indigo in our Kurtas, Kurtis, Tunics, Bottom, Ethnic sets, and Dresses.
What is Special about Indigo Dye?
The most special thing about Indigo is that, for thousands of years, it was the only good blue dye in continuation. Until the discovery of Prussian blue in the mid-eighteenth century, Indigo was the only good blue dye available in most of the world.
The Indigo dye is a natural dye extract from the leaves of some plants of the Indigofera genus, in particular, Indigofera tinctoria. Dye-bearing Indigofera plants were commonly grown and used throughout the world.
Indigo is notable for being both: more light-resistant and more wash-resistant than almost all other natural dyes.

What was Indigo used for?
You might recall that shades of blue and purple were colors possessed by royals or the extremely rich. This is because there were very few dyestuffs that could yield such hues, especially with such vibrancy. Knowing this, it’s no wonder that Indigo was prized for its gorgeous and intangible color. European women used it as a hair dye or for their eye makeup. And women from West Africa used it for body paint and tattooing. Indigo cloth was priced at such high value that it was referred to as “blue gold,” and in darker times, the fabric was even used as currency in the slave trade.
In Japan, Indigo dyeing is referred to as ai-zome. The dye was hugely popular during the Edo period after a law restricting the lower classes from wearing silk was passed. Indigo’s colorfastness on cotton made it an ideal dye to work with.
In India, Indigo was important for the same reason as in Japan. Before the industrial era, it was the only dye other than madder that stayed permanently on cotton. Besides, the dye reacted too quickly to be used for traditional Indian block printing.
Nowadays, synthetic Indigo dominates the fashion world, but there has been a very recent resurgence in affection for the natural version in an up-to-date fashion, particularly with ikat and other traditional handmade textile techniques being so on-trend. Indigo is generally used for denim. However, now we are using it in every outfit for women.
Indigo blue color is quite a trend among fashionistas nowadays. Owing to its sheer glory and charm, online shopping of Indigo dress is at an all-time high. No, that’s not at all an overstatement. Aside from modern-day denim heads, the Indigo blue dye-plant-based has secured a prominent spot in the fashion world and everyone loves to buy the Indigo dresses, Kurtis, ethnic sets, Kurtas, bottoms, and more.
So, update your wardrobe with these Indigo dresses, Kurta or tunics and flaunt your charming personality every day.
