Indigo Tie Dye Kit
This Indigo Tie Dye Kit brings the ancient art of indigo dying into a user-friendly formulation that delivers beautiful results. Indigo dye is plant-based and is one of the oldest dyes used for coloring fabrics and is still used today most notably to color blue denim.
The kit includes pre-reduced Indigo dye, reducing agent, gloves, two sizes of rubber bands, two wood blocks, quick start instructions, and an instruction booklet with dye patterns and a historical overview of indigo. Every kit dyes up to 15 shirts or 15 yards (5 lbs.) of fabric. Kit does not include fabric. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
