Feeling Blue: Indigo Inspirations

INDIGO-SHIRT

If you look around any shop these days chances are you will run into some indigo or indigo inspired clothing.

While this trend has not been around that long in the western world, in Japan, the love indigo dyed fabric has been going strong since the Edo period (1603-1867) and shows no signs of letting up.

The charm of indigo is its ability to convey a warm and inviting tone regardless of whether the hue is dark or light which in my mind makes it a wonderful addition to any casual wardrobe.
