★★Tasting of edible indigo and indigo dyeing activity using sukumo (indigo dyestuff ) produced by our company!★★

It has long been said that "indigo craftsmen never get sick". Due to its nutritional value and functionality, indigo has not only been popular as a dye, but also been eaten for its health benefits.

Although indigo is typically known as a dye, it has been popular as a medicine since ancient times, and its use is described in China's oldest book on medicinal herbs.

In Japan, indigo merchants were said to carry it in their pockets as a "good-luck charm" for long journeys during the Edo period.
