When Johan Åberg found the indigo molecule, he fell in love with it. His passion for this organic dye compound has led to the creation of an own blue universe.
We visited Johan’s Gothenburg-based studio to see him at work and hear more about how his obsession with indigo came about. He was not shy to give insights about his dye techniques, show us some of his traditional Japanese shibori and sashiko reparations, and give some insight behind Dye for Indigo philophosy.
