Chinese Indigo designs were done in batik dating back to the Sui Dynasty (AD581-618). Though Batik is more generally associated with India and the Far and Middle East, it is thought that the art probably developed in China and spread through the other areas. Batik using Indigo cloth is still being done in the Guizhou Province. I have found examples of bed cloths, table cloths, clothing, personal items such as handbags – the designs are appropriate decoration for just about any project. And though white and Indigo are the traditional colors, they can of course be done in many different ways!
