The mercury is dropping and winter is settling in. However, the Indigo People Spring 2016 collection should come out right now because it’s got enough fire to keep you warm all throughout the winter. It’s also all scarves so, practically, it would actually keep you warm.
The brand brings natural indigo and hand-loomed textiles together to make some of the most beautiful accessories out there. Yarns can be dipped in natural indigo up to 20 times to achieve super rich, inky tones that will only get more textural with wear. For this season, they use shibori patterns made using a resist dye technique. Rather than using a traditional tie-dye method, the patterns are tied to the weaving yarns as a resist dye. The result is a very fine and clear shibori pattern.
Adding a delicate nature to their collection, the Amagi and Higa scarves are intricately woven with fine silk yarns. Because of the fineness of the yarns themselves, the fabrics are difficult to tame and can take up to five days to weave a single scarve. In the end, they have a slight sheen and a nubby texture similar to shantung.
We also see a small set of neckties in this collection – a first for Indigo People. The ties are hand-cut using ikat patterns to form patchwork. Business casual is now more wabi-sabi.
The collection ranges from €79 to €269 or $84USD to $289USD and you can find it at Indigo People.
