These cotton indigo pocket squares and neckerchiefs have just arrived at the Haberdashery and are available in a range of prints and patterns.

Indigo dye has been used dating as far back as 2000 BC, found in mummies tombs in Egypt it was highly regarded and used regularly as is today  and the process has remained the same since these ancient times.

The dye imparts a brilliant blue hue to fabric. In the dying process, cotton threads are usually soaked and dried 15-20 times. After dying, the yarn may be sun dried to deepen the colour. Indigo is unique in its ability to impart surface colour while only partially penetrating fibres.
