My Love is Blue

Make plain old sheets, clothing, or curtains look like they’ve been dipped in sky with Megan Mussari's Indigo Dye Kit. Megan's interest in natural dyes—especially indigo, one that people have used for over 6,000 years—blossomed while she was working with the synthetic kind in the fashion industry. She developed this kit so that everyone could try the ancient, plant-derived dye. Indigo creates shades ranging from pale blue to almost black, depending on how any times the fabric is dipped. The kit contains all the "ingredients" and tools needed to give some faded or stained linens or duds beautiful celestial hues—and a whole new life. Components made in China and Thailand. Assembled in New York City.

Through her intuitive curiosity in natural dyes and desire to make quality products by hand, and a background in the fashion and textiles industry, Megan saw and felt firsthand the harsh effects of synthetic dyes in mass production. In an effort to find friendlier alternatives, her studies and explorations in natural dyeing began. Following these endeavors, Megan was able to focus on the Japanese tradition of Shibori indigo dyeing. These methods provide structure while also allowing for experimentation in an effort to broaden knowledge, skills and inspirations. From Megan's artist studio in Brooklyn, New York, she is on a constant search and exploration inspired by natural movements. By embracing the beauty of human error within the dyeing process,each design is truly one of a kind.
