spellbound - indigo

lndigo, deep purple, to luscious blue, to pale seaglasss green. Extracted from the indigo plant, it's been utilized from India to Japan for centuries to dye textiles and wool through a process of fermentation. This natural extraction process is still in use today, but modern dye methods are more often used to produce the many blues we see in mass produced garments such as denim today. 

I think indigo is one of the most beautiful natural colors, and seeing it's various results leaves me feeling perfectly spellbound.
