At five years old, seeing my grandmother and her mother hang wet green fabric on the clothesline that changed blue in front of my bewildered eyes as it was blowing in the wind transfixed me. Indigo dyeing as historically practiced by indigenous people on the Coastal Plains of Carolina is both art and medicine. My passion is to share the multi-generational knowledge that I hold with others who want to experience the transformation of The Indigo Blues.
