How it started
Back in my hometown in Northern Thailand, my village and family members specialize in a unique Indigo Dyeing process. My husband and I who currently live in New York, aim to bring you these unique products for indigo lovers but also to keep the mastery of the traditional techniques alive by working directly with these weavers and indigo dyers from my hometown. Doing this also helps my family and the villagers back home.
How we work
They are traditional weavers where hand looming and indigo dyeing have been practiced for generations. Each village has its own specialized technique that has a long tradition. These production methods can result in little imperfections that give each product a unique appearance. The main material is based on unbleached and unprocessed cotton. The raw cotton is manually spun, which results in unevenness in the yarns. These little nubs in the weaving yarns give the product a natural and rugged look. When the scarves are worn more often, the cotton fibre will get more flexible and gain softness. In some products, the cotton fibre is combined with silk to increase the wearer’s comfort and to give the product a subtle shine.
