Bananas about Indigo!


Here is my sure fire recipe for a mini indigo vat. This is ideal to dye a T shirt or two.

Believe me, the feeling of exhilaration that you will have when you see that shade of blue after your 5th dip is priceless!  

I'll add bits as I go.


15 grams Indigo pigment powder

Calcium Hydroxide

350 grams overripe bananas

Warm water

Utensils and other materials:

A container of about 2.5 quarts with a lid. I recoup plastic buckets in which my husband buys his chocolate powder!

A sieve like the one pictured on the right. These are available at Target. The great thing about them is that they open out to fit various sizes of pots.

More tomorrow.
