Indigo face covering

Lan Yin Hua Bu (Katazome) refers to the blue grass [indigo] derived dye. The designs are made with the use of powdered soybean and lime for the resist paste technique using hand cut stencil paper for the intricate patterns. Each part of the design and dyeing process is done by an Indigo Master of over 50 years experience. His skills were handed down by four previous Masters using unchanged traditional methods.
