Blue Print Amsterdam is a studio where they invent & experiment with long forgotten handmade printing & dying techniques. Blueprint treasures bygone knowledge and uses the discoveries to create contemporary products, design concepts and to give workshops. Blue Print was set up by Celia Geraedts, a graphic artist & brand identity designer who combines many handmade techniques in her designs. Celia has a special love relation with indigo dyed materials. She applies her creative approach to collections for Levi’s, Denham, Tommy Hilfiger & Esprit Denim (a.o.).

This upcoming month they will open a store (only open in March and April) loaded with rare indigo items between the Spuistraat and Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal in Amsterdam. Besides that they also start organising several indigo workshops, so you learn all the ins and outs about the magical plant Indigofera. Check their site for all the exact workshop dates.
