Dye your own scarf with organic Indigo (Maya Blue)
Learn about indigo (Maya Blue) at Hacienda Los Nacimientos, one of two farms in the world with the highest quality certification of organic indigo, where you will be able to dye your own scarf.
Indigo is a blue natural colorant extracted from the xiquilite plant, and was used by the Mayas for their clothing and crafts. We will enjoy a private and exclusive visit of the Hacienda along with its owner, who will share the history and process. If in season, we will witness the actual process on how the green leaves when mixed with water, produce the blue color inside the “obraje”. Then, we will participate in a hands on workshop where artisans will show us different techniques on how to dye a scarf.
