Many of our fabrics have been dyed using natural products rather than chemicals. Natural indigo is derived from a plant, and the color will gradually lighten over time (think of the fading on old denim jeans).
Our indigo block prints are printed by hand with natural indigo dye in Rajasthan, India, using neither electricity nor chemical dyes. They're printed on cambric, a plain-weave cotton heavier than batiste (but lighter and softer than quilting cotton), which is perfect for most garment making.
Our indigo shibori fabrics are dyed by hand in Rajasthan using natural indigo on soft cotton voile, a fine semi-sheer fabric with a beautiful drape and silky touch. (It may need to be lined for some garments.) Most shibori fabric is machine-printed and only looks handmade - why not wear something that actually is handmade?
