History
Many years ago the only way to get indigo-colored dye was to take it from the Indigofera Tinctoria plant that only grows in India. Many people tried to get it, which made it rare, exotic, and unique. Indigo blue was thought to be used by Egyptians as early as 4500 BCE to wrap their mummies.
