This is the job offer...sounds like a great opportunity to learn about all aspects of indigo from the ground up while making some money.

I’m looking for someone with a basic knowledge of textiles, fibers, and dyeing who enjoys working with their hands;  is meticulous, thorough, dependable, consistent and patient; and who’s not afraid of being spotted with blue hands!
