Bandhani tie and dye

The traditional Bhandani technique is a tie and dye resist method which is similar to the Japanese Shibori technique. Each shape is composed by plucking the cloth with the fingernails into many tiny bindings that form a figurative design. The bindings resist colour during the indigo dyeing process. The art of Bandhani is a highly skilled and labour intensive way of producing patterned textile.

Natural Indigo Dye

To get a deep dark blue colour, the fabric is dipped about 10 to 20 times in a vat of indigo. The more the fabric is dipped in the natural indigo, the darker the blue colour will get. During the dyeing process, no chemicals are added. General wear, use and wash will fade the colour and each product will gain its unique appearance by time.

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.
