Founded on the affection for natural craftsmanship and the love for natural indigo, Indigo People was established in 2013. Combining contemporary design with authentic techniques, every product is unique. Each product is hand woven and customized with integrity by a master artisan, who hand picks the base materials an dyes them in indigo. Our aim is not only to create unique products for indigo lovers, but also to keep the mastery of the technique alive by working with small scale production.
Among the main weaving techniques are ‘ikat’, ‘open weave’, ‘batik’, and ‘4-grill’. These production methods can result in little imperfections, giving 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 fiber will get more flexible and gain softness. In some products the cotton fiber is combined with silk to increase the wearer’s comfort and to give the product a subtle shine.
