The Sakol Project is a project to promote a natural indigo dyed fabric from SSAP founder & designer home country, Thailand. Sakol is short from Sakolnakorn, a province in Northeast of Thailand. This northern province in Thailand is best known for it’s indigo blue fabrics. Villagers still use centuries-old weaving and dyeing techniques that continue a long tradition of quality. In the video here below you can see how they do the whole process by hand: spinning, indigo dyeing and weaving. Indigo craftsmanship!
