Ice Water Indigo

Product Overview

This is a recipe booklet based on handouts my students receive for Japanese indigo harvest classes, available as a digital download.

It contains recipes for blue, indirubin pink, yellow, and green on both protein and cellulose fibers, plus information on using an embossing machine instead of pounding for direct application.

There is also info on drying leaves for future use.

It is a work-in-progress; once you purchase this download, it is always available to you. This means you may log in, go to your orders, click on the order that has the document, and click on the blue button to download a new copy any time. I update it two or three times annually as I learn new things, but not on a regular schedule.

Latest revision is #7 on September 9, 2022

    Rare Information

    Posted by Pat on Sep 8th 2022

    Well written, solid chemistry, and clear instructions for a topic hard to find information on. Japanese Indigo is the first blue I've successfully been able to grow, and look forward to getting additional colors.

    Excellent information, too succintly shared

    Posted by Rosa Q on Aug 19th 2022

    After reading an article in Spin-Off about getting multiple colors from fresh leaf indigo, I was super excited to see that there was *a whole book* about it. To discover that it was actually a 26-page pamphlet was rather a shock. It isn't exactly that I feel I didn't get my money's worth; I would have paid more than that just to attend a talk by Ms. Hallman on all of this. But I did feel misled; this is presented with a cover image as if it is a more conventional book, when in fact it is a 26-page PDF, (and that includes the cover and title page and blank pages for formatting). I feel this should be made explicit on the purchasing page. Simply saying "this is the table of contents" is not enough. Sure, it's on me that I didn't notice there were no pages numbers over 21 in the TOC, but c'mon, that's shady. Again, the information contained in this self-published document is terrific, and hard to find elsewhere. I'm just left with a bad taste in my mouth by the misdirection over the size of the publication I was buying for $20.

    I never realized I could get so many colors from the indigo I am growing! This book also contains info about drying the leaves in different ways to yield different results. The information is presented well with easy to understand instructions.

    I'm very excited to have found this publication. Information on Indirubin is scarce and to see several methods outlined was exciting! Lots of new info and applicable information for small scale indigo growers. Highly recommend it!!
