Indigo batik cotton rolls from the hill tribes of S.E Asia with colorful embroidered lines.

CRAFT & CARE

Hill tribe textiles are highly sought after by crafters as well as by collectors of world textiles – the thick texture makes them ideal for homeware, cushions and upholstery, while the hand drawn batik designs and deep history behind every piece produces uniquely beautiful products. Vintage textiles are often worn, with a rustic appearance holding a story all their own.

For washing hill tribe textiles we recommend washing separately, by hand, and letting shade dry.

ABOUT HMONG TEXTILES

The Hmong are one of many hill tribes including the Lisu and Akha, that are found throughout the border regions of SE Asia. Using traditional methods passed down generations they create their bright embroidery, deep indigo dyed clothing and rich textiles that are steeped in meaning and tradition.

INDIGO PLANT DYE

Indigo dye has been used for thousands of years by civilizations all over the world to dye textiles. As much as 1 tonne of leaves is needed to produce just 2kg of dye. Natural indigo is also a sustainable dye; after the pigment has been extracted the plant residue can be composted and used as a fertilizer and the water reused to irrigate crops.
