Today I want to dedicate a post to Indigo People. I came across this brand during Amsterdam Denim Days.
I have already mentioned their amazing indigo scarves in one of my previous posts.
Indigo People‘s headquarter is in Almere, Netherlands, the country that has gained, over the past few years, the title of denim mecca.
This relatively new brand was born out of the passion towards artisanal craftsmanship and the beauty of natural indigo.
In a society where the majority of products are made fast and mechanized, Indigo People represents an unique gem appealing an increasing number of conscious consumers that appreciate the artisanal craftsmanship (I am one of them).
I was in contact with Kiat Yen, designer and co-founder of the brand. He forwarded me the images of the FA15 LookBook. Beautiful, unisex, hand woven scarves, just the right width to be worn as a shawl or around your neck.
I bought for myself an Aomori scarf a few months ago. As each scarf is woven from unprocessed cotton, its appearance is raw and naturally rugged, but once the scarves are more worn, the cotton fibers get more flexible and softer.
