Indigo Tide Luxury Handloom from Thailand
I've been looking for a textile from Thailand for a while now, trying to find that 'perfect' one! This is it - this medium weight hand woven Indigo has superb qualities. It not only looks and feels great, it's also made using a very special, traditional Thai method with unrefined (not mass produced) cotton.
The indigo is 100% plant-based dye and from a group that works closely with traditional weaving co-ops in North East Thailand. Our supplier has kindly shared the story behind this textile and I had to share more details on our Faberblog along with some fabulous behind the scenes photographs.
I was lucky enough to visit Thailand many years ago and this fabric feels very familiar to me, I remember these little features of the threads, how they are loomed and the beautifully finished selvedge that you may want to include in your project!
For ideas on what to make: I can best describe this fabric fas Thailand's answer to denim, with it's gorgeous natural blue colour and texture. Shirts, dresses and skirts most definitely spring to my mind.
My favourite thing about this fabric? - you'll not know exactly what you are going to get in each metre - it's totally hand made and it changes throughout the bolt. There could be more 'splashy' bits! What a treat! These fabrics do come narrower than most, but it's worthwhile when you're getting something as unique as this!
