MOSS ISAN WOVEN SHORTS
Every item is uniquely and individually crafted. 100% artisanal cotton, hand-spun, and handwoven by Indigo Grandmas in Sakon Nakhon in the Northeast of Thailand.
In the Northeast of Thailand, weaving and dyeing is a way of life, the men farm the rice paddies and the women weave unless it is harvesting season when everyone is out in the fields. The last 2 decades have seen indigo dyeing, cotton, and silk weaving evolve beyond a cottage industry. Today, the grandmas have become the teachers of this art that they pass on to their children and grandchildren.
Moss cotton yarn is hand-dyed with 100% Natural Indigo Dye then dip-dyed in mango dye. Mango dye is made from boiling the bark or leaves of the Mango tree depending on the season to release a rich yellow color. This keeps a consistency throughout the trousers as the yarn is then woven. Every item is uniquely and individually crafted, slight variations in color may occur in the dyeing process.
