In ancient times, indigo was associated with the Hindu god Lord Krishna, whose name in Sanskrit means “dark blue.” Indigo was a leading export from north India in the early 19th century, fueled by European demand for this dye. However, due to tensions between British traders and Bengali growers culminating in The Blue Mutiny of 1859, production collapsed in the mid 19th century. As a result, true indigo virtually ceased to exist in South Asia, and indigo began to signify sorrow and pain. However, today, the revival of indigo growing in the region is an attempt to create a sustainable industry that benefits the producers in rural communities and restore a positive meaning to indigo.
