Indigo is a special boutique run by Tanh, a local H’mong minority, and her Japanese expat husband. The place offers simple, modern takes on traditional ethnic clothing. Specially, the mostly solid-colored cotton or linen clothes are dyed by natural vegetable dyes. Unlike those which are sold at markets or by street sellers, Indigo’s pieces are properly dyed to ensure colors won’t run when thrown in the washing machine. The boutique employs local disadvantaged workers to sew and embroider their clothing and wares. The Indigo line is also sold at the Victoria Sapa Hotel gift shop.
