We recently started selling on Etsy. If you go to the shop bar above the link is also there.
The Philly Swap event was held in the Urban Outfitter’s Naval yard space early October. We had a stand at the event to describe and demo the indigo vat process. We made small swatch bracelets and also had some marigolds being boiled to describe a non vat related dye. It was a great experience!!!
