THE ART OF
Studio One Eighty Nine collaborates with communities in Mali to create Indigo textiles. Indigo dye is a natural dye extracted from plants with a distinctive blue color. Indigo was the foundation of centuries-old textile traditions throughout West Africa. Our artisans dye fabric into different print patterns using this technique and the fabric is then transported to Ghana and used by our tailors and seamstresses to create our garments. It takes 2-3 artisans and approximately 3 weeks for us to produce indigo.
