From Egyptian Mummies to blue jeans, learn more about the incredible impact of indigo. Graphic designers Patrick Thomas and Tony Brook are collaborating to discover more about how this unique colour has transformed culture within different contexts.

Together they talk with Jenny Balfour-Paul who has spent her career immersing herself in the subject. They will share this colourful journey showing the natural origin and source of the colour and sharing the history, influence on the textile production across different cultures, from the dye of denim and the wide array of colours it creates. Indigo will brighten and offer a new more enriched way of looking at the colours surrounding us, from clothes to interiors.
