The Daydream Beach Blanket Kit by Kristine Vejar, co-owner of AVFKW // featuring fabric and indigo vat supplies.

Imagine yourself sitting on this blanket on the beach, with your favorite friend, pet or book - every so often staring off into the distance - or up at the sky, daydreaming. When the day is over, fold and roll the blanket into a tidy bundle and secure with the attached strap. 

With the Daydream Beach Blanket Kit, you can learn the indigo vat process and create your own indigo dyed blanket with the blue, rectangular shaped designs. We have created kits using the same materials Kristine used in her project! What's more, the indigo vat that you will make with these supplies has enough indigo in it to dye many more textiles from around your house in addition to your beach blanket: clothing, fabric, towels, bags, etc.
