Indigo People Hand Loomed Selvedge Denim Bags
Indigo People has developed three versions of their denim bags. The bags are called Kino, Goro and Nori. All the three bags are made of 17oz selvedge fabrics. The fabrics are manually woven on traditional hand looming machines. A very time consuming process. The weft yarns of the fabrics are multiple dipped in natural indigo following authentic dyeing process. After weaving they washed the fabrics. The outcome of all the fabrics are a bit different due the hand process, so each bag is unique.
On the bags are leather parts which are natural tanned, so they will age together with the bag itself. All metal hardware is created by hand using recycled metal from used bullets. The bags are crafted in Indonesia.
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 it’s unique appearance by time.
