We are excited to announce we just received another drop of our African indigo scarfs at both Tenue de Nîmes stores. These beautiful scarfs are indigo-dyed and hand-woven by the Mossi Tribe according to a century old technique. Before the introduction of synthetic dyes, the ability to transform everyday white cotton into prized deep blue cloth was a mysterious and highly valuable skill passed on by specialist dyers from generation to generation. Back in those days, indigo cloth signified wealth, abundance and fertility.
Although many of us might instantly think 'Japan' when indigo comes to mind, these indigo scarfs are a true piece of African Heritage. Every single one of them has a unique vintage character and they are available in large and a medium size.
