The technique used to make indigo in Wuzhen dates back to the 13th century. This shop still preserves the traditional layout of workshops in that period with the dyehouse in back and shop in front, being both a manufacturer and a retailer. The materials used in making indigo fabric are environmentally-friendly cotton, soybean-based sizing and natural dye from bluegrass. The production process is carried out all by hand. Major indigo products include clothes, kerchiefs, coasters, fans, tablecloths, umbrellas, cell phone bags, wallets, backpacks and various ornaments. All objects have distinctive local folk flavor.
