Lan Yin Hua Bu refers to the blue grass [indigo] derived dye. The designs are made with the use of powdered soybean and lime for the resist paste technique using hand cut stencil paper for the intricate patterns. Each part of the design and dyeing process is done by an Indigo Master of over 50 years experience. His skills were handed down by four previous Masters using unchanged traditional methods.
BLUEHANDED has an exclusive relationship with the Master, working closely together to achieve the highest quality, standards and customer service to develop and work with designers around the world for bespoke and exclusive patterns. Our hand made indigo fabrics are artisanal products that preserve vanishing skills and culture. The slow fashion style is based on the same principles of the slow food movement, as the alternative to mass-produced, fast fashion. The slow movement intends to reject mass-produced products, referring only to fabric and products made by hand.
