Indigo People’s concept
Founded on the affection for traditional craftsmanship and the love for natural indigo, Indigo People combines contemporary design with authentic techniques. Every product is produced in small scale and thus unique. Each product is handcrafted and customised with integrity by a master artisan. We collaborate with traditional weaver communities in Asian countries where hand looming and indigo dyeing have been practised for generations. Each community has its own specialised technique that has a long tradition. Ikat weaving, mud resist printing and batik printing are the most authentic manual techniques used by our artisans. These production methods can result in little imperfections, giving each product a unique appearance. Our aim is not only to create unique products for indigo lovers but also to keep the mastery of the traditional techniques alive by working directly with the traditional weavers and indigo dyers. We support the talents and skills of traditional craftsmen and share the beauty of their work with the rest of the world.
