There is a saying in Japanese, which translates literally into, "Although blue dye comes from the indigo plant, it is bluer than indigo." Its figurative meaning, however, is, "the student has surpassed the master."

Understand where this saying came from when you learn about the fascinating Japanese artisanship of aizome, in which the dyed fabric becomes bluer than the original blue indigo plant from which the dye comes from.

Surpass the master as you color fabric items a beautifully deep blue using the traditional and environmentally-friendly method of indigo dyeing at the historical street of Udatsu.
