NEWS   DHG isn’t taking any time off, but we’re giving ourselves a few extra days off. So, as well as the public holidays we’ll also be closed the 25th and 26st April. Happy Easter! In this time there may be a slight delay processing orders, we’d like to thank you in advance for being patient.

48,50 € /pc TAX FREE Book: Indigo: The Colour that Changed the World

The process involves the same steps the world over: cultivation or wild harvesting of the plant, extraction of the pigment, preparation of the dye bath, and dyeing of the cloth or yarn. The weaver, tailor or embroiderer then transform the dyed cloth into garments of sublime beauty.
The journey follows the blue thread that links Japan to Central America via southern China, India and Mali. It transports the reader into the realms of botany and chemistry, of world exploration, commerce and the slave trade, of cultural identity, medicine, folk beliefs, handcrafts and globalization, the universality of techniques and the particularity of fashions.
