this photo is called BLUE, so, of course, I had to add it to my Color Blue board. It's a striking pattern and a vivid blue that is eye catching.

Dying fabric blue with Woad to look like indigo. Woad, a natural dye derived from organic woad plant material. The process and formula dates back to the 15th century and is particularly important to Toulouse and its history. Originally woad blue was reserved for the Royals and the color blue has special meaning throughout French history and language (sacre bleu). Napoleon's troops wore uniforms dyed with Woad.
