DARK INDIGO ISAN WOVEN SHORTS
In the Northeast of Thailand, weaving and dyeing is a way of life. While the men farm the rice paddies, the women weave unless it is harvesting season when everyone is out in the fields. During the past two decades, indigo dyeing, cotton weaving, and silk weaving have transcended the cottage industry, becoming well-known throughout the world. Today, the grandmas have become the teachers of this art that they pass on to their children and grandchildren.
Isan Woven has been a local significance and heritage for times. The Isan Woven has been part of daily life in Isan for generations. The all-natural textile has a unique texture that breaths and moves elegantly while being resilient and functional.
The Dark Indigo Isan Woven Shorts is crafted upon the beauty of Isan Woven with extra details of drawstrings and skull details. Made from 100% artisanal cotton, hand-spun, and handwoven by our Indigo Grandmas in Sakon Nakhon, the Northeast of Thailand.
Dark Indigo cotton yarn is hand-dyed with 100% Natural Indigo Dye from Sakon Nakhon province. This process keeps consistency throughout the trousers as the yarn that is then woven is an even shade of dark indigo.
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.
