Indigo People creates unique indigo pieces based on authentic craftsmanship. The Indigo People items are a perfect addition on your denim outfit and combines textile designs with the classic jeans attitude. For Spring/Summer 2017 Indigo People explored the traditional batik printing technique combined with indigo dyeing. The inspiration for this new collection came from antique batik textiles and vintage Japanese shibori designs.
Batik is a wax-resist printing and dyeing process applied to the finished textile. Batik is either created by hand drawing with the melted wax using a sprouted tool called ‘canting’, or by printing the wax with a handmade copper stamp. The wax blocks the dyestuff to penetrate into the textile. Then the cloth is dipped piece by piece multiple times in natural indigo by hand, to achieve the deep indigo colour. To remove the printed wax, the cloth is boiled in hot water. Once the wax is removed the printed areas regain their raw colour and the artwork appears on the textile.
Great to see that this indigo brand is expanding their collection with shirts next to their beautiful scarves. Keep up the good work guys. Take a look at the Indigo People SS17 collection.
