Ah the wonder of Indigo! I don't think there is anyone out there in cyberland that is not in love with the color. It is the dye of the ever wonderful jeans that we wear almost daily. I love the dipping a white piece of fabric into the Indigo pot and pulling it out. The green color that oxidizes to the beautiful blue that I love is absolute magic. Now for you that love to learn almost all there is to know about this natural dye there will be a talk courtesy Oregon State University on Indigo. Dr. Roald Hoffmann will speak April 19th at 8pm At the Embassy Suites Hotel. His talk is titled "INDIGO A Story of Craft, Religion, History, Science, and Culture. Dr. Hoffmann is the 1981 Nobel Laureate. This talk is free, and open to the public. It is recommended that you reserve a seat by calling 541-737-2075.
And don't forget that we have a wonderful Indigo Pot here at ETC. Come by and use it on our Indigo Drop in Days. You can check our scedule on the website or call the store to find out the dates.
