Indigo Summer

Posted on 7/4/2013

Indigo blues are a favorite across the line in home décor this season.

The color indigo was named after the Indigo dye derived from the plant Indigofera tinctoria.

India is believed to be the oldest center of indigo dyeing in the Old World. It was a primary supplier of indigo dye to Europe as early as the Greco-Roman era.

This brilliant blue evokes a peaceful environment that reminds us of the water and sky. Perhaps this is why this vibrant color is a favorite with designers across the globe.
