Natural Indigo Dyed by Blue Print Amsterdam
A regular white Long John shirt is dyed by hand in natural indigo. The natural indigo, Indigofera Suffruticosa, is coming from Central America. The shirts are dyed 3 times by hand in top notch indigo to get the right blue colour. A very time consuming process. Each shirt takes around 45 minutes to achieve the right colour. After dyeing they were put in a vinegar bath and rinsed in water, so they won’t ‘bleed’ anymore. They’re to wear!
The CM sizing of the shirts are;
- Medium: 51 cm (pit to pit) and 71 cm length.
- Large: 53 cm (pit to pit) and 72 cm length.
- X-Large: 55 cm (pit to pit) and 74 cm length.
