Indigo People was founded when Kiat Yen and Johan van den Berg encountered artisans struggling to maintain their cultural heritage. It was often the case that mothers and grandmothers lost the ability to pass on the secrets of their craft when children moved to the city to pursue economic opportunities. When they discovered that these skills were about to be lost to the world forever, they started Indigo People to support the talent and skills of traditional craftsmen and share the beauty of their work with the rest of the world. 

OGORI scarf

Open weave
The open weave is a plain weave with an open texture that is created on the two treadle hand loom. The weaving yarns must be thickened with rice powder before weaving to gain extra volume. After the textile is woven, the rice powder gets removed by soaking the textile in water. The yarns regain the original thickness and gaps appear between the yarns that create the open weave. The open weave can be worn throughout the seasons. During the chilly spring evenings, the airy texture gives a comfortable warmness whilst the air between the gaps create extra warmth for the cold months.

Natural Indigo Dye
To get a deep dark blue colour, the weaving yarns are dipped about 10 to 20 times in a vat of indigo. The more the yarns are 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.
