Story

Backstrap looms been used since ancient times to weave narrow strips of fabric. Once the strips are sewn together the fabric is tied, stitched, clamped–or covered in a wax resist–and dipped into a dye vat. With each dip the indigo dyes the textile a deeper blue. The resist is later removed to reveal a beautiful one-of-a-kind pattern.
