These scrap bags contain six prices of handmade indigo Beanpaste fabric (Blue Nankeen or Lan Yin Hua Bu).

Made from 100% cotton and dyed with natural indigo these stunning designs are mixing ground soya beans into a flour and mising with water and lime to make a thick paste.  The paste is then squeezed through a stencil onto the fabric and left to dry.  Once dry the fabrics is dyed in indigo and then dyed until the desired depth of colour is achieved.  Once dry the paste is scraped off to reveal the un-dyed areas of the fabric and the beauty of the pattern is revealed.
These scraps are perfect for small craft projects, scrapbooking, card making or quilting.
