Isan Dreams - a dichotomy for it speaks of development routing in our pastoral past of going home to the land rather than dreams of a bright shiny future. It represents the possibility for change: a vision of the future rooted in the land yet embracing what is yet to come. It represents our journey to Isan, the family of Indigo Grandmas, and the artisans we've met. It represents a vision for the future from the past and envisions harmony between nature and technology.
Sakon Nakhon indigo is naturally anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial, and provides a cooling effect through UV protection. It is a living and breathing dye.
Our Signature nuanced orange color comes from the local tree; Thai people call this tree 'Pradu' (Pterocarpus macrocarpus). The color is brought to life by slicing the rosewood bark and soaking them in water overnight. The process draws out a reddish pink that will darken over time to a reddish brown shade.
