More like a work of art than a fashion accessory: The rare indigo shawl with ikat pattern.

Completely dyed with plant dye and made on hand looms according to old traditions.

In ancient times, the intensely blue dye was obtained from the Indian indigo plant (Indigofera tinctoria). Today it is almost exclusively chemically produced. Far less than 4% of the global market share is still made with vegetal indigo. The slightly lighter and less violet original blue shade is highly appreciated by connoisseurs.
Ikat patterns are deeply rooted in the traditions of Southeast Asia.
The name of the traditional weaving technique means something like “wrapping”. The yarn is tensioned on frames before weaving, partially tied and dyed in sections. The tied parts and the differing intensive dyes determine shades and patterns.
Raw Cotton – unbleached, untreated and spun by hand.
Small irregularities in the yarn make for the natural character of the shawl, give it the rough structure and the grainy feel. The more you wear it, the softer and smoother it becomes.
“Indigo People” preserves the traditional weaving and dyeing arts of Southeast Asia.
The native Malaysian, Kiat Yen, founded his label in 2013. Nowadays the Dutch company supplies its indigo-coloured accessories to the best denim shops and concept stores in Europe.

200 x 58cm (78.7" x 22.8"). Narrow sides with hand-turned fringes. 100% cotton. Hand wash only.
