Our Price: US$8.49
Can't get enough of indigo dying? This refill of reduction agent will help you keep making clothing or interior design fabrics that famous "aizome" or "Japan blue".

Simply don the rubber gloves and mix the Konya-I Indigo Crystals into 5 litres of hot water. Stir until the crystals have completely dissolved and add the reduction agent. Let the mixture sit for 20 minutes. From there put the cloth you wish to dye in a second bucket of water. Remove the cloth and lightly squeeze to get rid of excess moisture. Gently place the cloth into the first bucket with indigo dye and leave it for 3 minutes. Take it out of the indigo bath, squeeze the excess dye out, and rinse the cloth lightly in the second bucket of water. Place the cloth on a sheet of newspaper and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Please note that the dye will appear green at first, but as it air dries the color will change to lovely indigo.

Please note that Japanese indigo can only be used with cotton, hemp, linen, silk, rayon, or wool. Polyester and other man-made fibres can NOT be dyed. Natural fibres blended with man-made fibres will also not dye well. This includes clothing that is sewn with polyester thread.

This kit comes with two 25grams of reduction agent. Simply add it to the indigo crystals and you are ready to make more beautiful indigo products.
