The Art of Crushing – crushed silks and cottons are beautiful. Crushing is a skill widely and traditionally used by artisan creators in the Indus Region, Pakistan and India that we want to share! Learning how crush at home is a really useful way to turn stained or unworn items into new feeling garments. Crushed items are easy to take care of and perfect travel pieces. Twisted and tied they take up little precious space!
Come along for a hands-on workshop on how to crush your silks.
We will have 100% silk INDOI scarves for crushing and take-away but feel free to bring along an item you´d like to transform (slip, vest top etc in silk).
Reigniting dying traditional crafts- these crafts and skills are the livelihoods for many in impoverished countries. We will also be showing a short video about the crafts of the Indus region, highlighting the skills & artisans of the region.
Indoi – a brand that celebrates the rich heritage of the Indus region, steeped in artisan tradition and exquisite craftsmanship. We create beautiful, timeless, seasonless clothes. Our garments tell the story of a culture, a legacy and a family of Indoi women whose grace, strength & individuality set them apart.
