We’re highlighting two of our special t-shirts that were individually hand-dyed with natural colours, the R&R Tee and the Seafoam Camo Tees (available in short and long sleeved). These were individually stitched together and dyed by shibori process in Sakon Nakhon.
Weaving and dyeing ingigo is a poetry embeded in the rich history of Sakon Nakhon’s community, with the skills set to complete this art form being passed down from generation to generation. Many villages thrive on producing indigo clothing. In Thailand the indigo plant, Indigofera tinctoria, is grown along the Songkhram River which originates in Udon Thani. The governor encourages every civil servant to wear indigo-dyed clothes on Fridays, whilst also supporting locals who form groups to produce indigo-dyed cloth. It’s estimated that there are more than 50 groups of villagers who produce indigo-dyed products in the province, generating more than 40 million baht annually.
Due to the nature of this process, each tee will be unique. Colour and details may vary. Handwash in cold water with mild detergent. Hang dry in shade.
The R&R Tee and the Seafoam Camo Tees, in short and long sleeved, is available now.
