Indigo Prints ????? - Old lifestyle in Suzhou (China)

Indigo prints, very popular in Suzhou and the water country in the lower yangtze, are made with homespun with blue designs on white ground or white designs on blue ground and used for making women's skirts and hats and things for use at home, such as quilt covers, mosquito nets, pillow cases and curtains. The blue and white motifs on them are simple and elegant. The dye comes from the leaves of the plant known as true indigo (Indigofera tinctoria). A sheet of oil paper is cut with with decorative motifs and placed on the cloth. The empty spaces are then covered with a coat of lime and bean flour mixed with water to prevent dye absorption. When the coating is dry, the cloth is dyed in the indigo solution. After drying, the dye-preventing coat is removed, the un-dyed parts are exposed. After washing and drying, the process is completed. if the motifs on the oil paper are exposed, the finished print will have white designs on blue ground. Otherwise, there will be blue designs on white ground.
Although the dye for all indigo prints comes from the sap of true indigo, each dye-works uses a different formula, which may have been handed down from the owners' forefathers.
