Pennonia Kékfestő was inspired by traditional Hungarian clothing decorations. The name refers to that specific color and the accompanied embroidery style used to decorate the clothes. In English it is known as “blue printing” or “bluedyeing”. While this style is not unique to Hungary , it nonetheless is considered a traditional folk technique/style. So not only is the name and color of this ink related to traditional Hungarian costumes it also has a connection with the textile dyeing which is the industry that basically allowed us to enjoy so many nice and interesting colors in our inks as well.
