A Confluence of Cultures in the Blue World of Asian Indigo Featuring Visiting Scholar, Padmini Tolat Balaram
The indigo dye is one of the oldest and best known natural colors in
the world. The word “indigo” originally refers to a dye, native to India.
Indian indigo was much sought after for its superior quality and
remained a rare and exotic commodity until the 16th century.
Because of its high value as a trading commodity, indigo was often
referred to as Blue Gold. Please see the invitation link below to learn more about Padmini Tolat Balaram and the event. Lecture fee is $10. For RSVP and inquiries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org; tel. 650-918-6335.
