Where this color come from?

A variety of plants have provided indigo throughout history, but most natural indigo was obtained from those in the genus Indigofera, which are native to the tropics, notably the Indian subcontinent. The primary commercial indigo species in Asia was true indigo (Indigofera tinctoria, also known as I. sumatrana).  In Central and South America, the species grown is I. suffruticosa (añil). In Europe woad containing the same dye was used for blue-dying. Several plants contain indigo, but low concentrations make them difficult to work with and the color is then more easily tainted by other dye substances, typically leading to a greenish tinge.

I love this color and in the last few days, I have been thinking about that. Why? Everything I looked catches my eyes to this color. So, I decided to write a post about this wonderful color and the meanings. I’m a fashion designer for 32 years and all my life I worked with denim indigo blue, our beloved jeans. I created a thousand of jeans pants to the companies I’ve worked developing design and laundry process. I really obsessed with jeans. Let’s take a look at what can indigo mean.
