Indigo Cloths

Handwoven and hand-dyed in Guinea and Mali

Our indigo damask cloths are from Guinea. They are handstitched to create a resist pattern, then hand-dyed in indigo.

Our plain and stitch resist indigo cloths are from Mali or Guinea. Most are of hand spun cotton, though some cloths are machine spun, as indicated. Hand spun cloths are slightly heavier than machine spun cloths. All cloths are made of narrow, handwoven strips which are sewn together to make a whole cloth, then hand-dyed in indigo.

In most cases each cloth is a unique creation: there is only one.

All cloths are 100% cotton.

Sizes vary, usually 105 x 140 cm / 41 x 55 in, approximately.
