Indigo is a plant-based dye that has been used throughout the world for thousands of years as a fiber colorant. Owing to indigo's naturally anti-microbial properties, it has an inherent purity - making it ideal to use as a meditation or altar cloth to increase pure vibrations.
My hand-dyed indigo cloth is an open-weave cotton with a soft, squishy feeling that creates beautiful texture and drape. Wrap it loosely over the head and shoulders to gently regulate a comfortable body temperature during meditation, or wrap it several times for added warmth when needed.
Slight variations in dye lots are natural to the fiber dying process and indicate each cloth's uniqueness.
