Known as a Bengala Company, “Kosyokunobi” now also directly imports natural Indian Indigo from a manufacturer in Southern India. This high quality indigo is from “Indigofera Pseudotinctoria” which belongs to fabids family. This indigo color is entirely hand-processed, from planting the seeds to manufacturing.
You can enjoy this beautiful Indigo blue that is grown in a large field with ample sunshine.
You can use this dye just like other Bengala Mud Dye colors. Yes, it’s EASY. Please contact me for the details.
