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. 

TSURU scarf

Hand-looming
Their artisans have a long tradition of hand weaving textiles, the weaving techniques have been passed from generation to generation and from mothers to daughters. Each community has its own special weave technique. The raw cotton used for the weaving yarns is cultivated in their own communities or purchased at the local market when the cotton is in short supply. The hand spun yarns are twisted by hand which results in irregularity in thickness. These yarns have a harsh hand feel, but they will gain softness after general wear like raw denim.

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.
