Indigolocks and the Maya Curated by: Koshari
"Once upon a time there was a little girl with big black eyes and black, black hair which, when the sun went down, shone with blue undertones. That's why she was called Indigolocks. "They began by planting indigo, sugar cane, pitaya fruit, cashews, ginger, bananas, terebinth, and more. Their star product became the indigo plant, from which they were able to make a dye. Since Indigolocks had studied how her Maya ancestors had used indigo to dye threads, she began to replicate many of the glyphs from the ancient temples and dyed the weaves with indigo. "Now everyone working at the Hacienda knows how to obtain the blue dye from the green plant, and they have also learned how to craft different items which they then color with indigo.

About the Curator
I love world cultures, art, archaeology, ancient history and anything ethnic and tribal. I'm an advocate for human rights and the environment. I'm a 3D content creator in various virtual worlds. I love curating for Novica! It's a balancing act to add interesting and complimentary images from the mood gallery without taking away from, or overpowering the products ... it can be a challenge but one that I thoroughly love doing. There are so many great artisans to try to represent, I hope to eventually include all of them in my gallery.
