Officially adding to the Jolene Melissa Officinalis collection, we welcome the hand made and hand dyed Form Fitted Curved Face Masks for Adults since COVID 19 is still a thing and masks are mandatory in some parts of the world.
These are available in a natural unbleached cotton or indigo dye (prices will vary as indigo dyeing is labour intensive).
Indigofera tinctoria, also called true indigo, is a species of plant from the bean family that was one of the original sources of indigo dye. It has been naturalized to tropical and temperate Asia, as well as Africa, but its native habitat is unknown since it has been in cultivation worldwide for many centuries. Today most dye is synthetic, but natural dye from indigofera tinctoria is still available, and we love it. Dye is obtained from the processing of the plant's leaves. Indigo is a deep and rich colour close to the colour wheel blue (a primary colour in the RGB Colour Space), as well as to some variants of ultramarine. It is traditionally regarded as a colour in the visible, as well as one of the seven colours of the rainbow: the colour between violet and blue; however, sources differ as to its actual position in the electromagnetic field.
The fabric for these mask has been pre-shrunk so wash as you normally would, indigo dyed ones with dark colours please as the colours can fade in the first washes. Protect yourselves and the ones you love including strangers!
