The first women collection by Indigofera is a fact. It’s a capsule collection and a collaboration with the Swedish denim brand and hand weaver and textile designer Miriam Parkman.
Mats Andersson (founder Indigofera), Mirian Parkman (textile designer), and Pontus Rogbring (Indiofera’s designer).
The First Women’s Collection
The capsule collection is named High Coast. It’s the brand’s first women collection since it starts in 2009. This special High Coast capsule collection is based on a mutual appreciation for the magnificence of nature and knowledge of the craft.
About Miriam Parkman
Miriam Parkman is born and raised among the high mountains and the deep valleys of the world heritage of northern Sweden. They’re known as ‘Höga Kusten’.
These dramatic colors and shapes have always been an inspiration for her work. In her studio outside Stockholm, these memories process through her floor loom, transforming into woolen tapestries and rugs.
Together Indigofera and Miriam Parkman present a collection that mixes the expertise of heritage clothing by the brand and Miriam’s knowledge in weaving. Two blankets were drafted from Miriam’s hand-woven originals and five garments created with inspiration from Miriam’s love for the 1940s – ’1960s work- and western wear.
Within the collection are weaver’s pants, denim and duck canvas, cliffs and moss shirt, dresses, jackets, and a special high coast-themed bandana designed by screen printer Helen Entwisle. There’s also a hand-printed postcard, and special high-coast-themed patched hand made by chain stitcher Tina Vines in the collection.
