care :
This piece is composed from decades-old Vietnamese indigo dyed fabric, hand-sourced in Vietnam. Treated with care and respect, it will live on with you for many years.

Authentic, plant-derived indigo dyes impart rich and lively colour, but require extra care.

Unevenness and complexity are part of its natural character. Unlike synthetic dye, you can expect some indigo to transfer to lighter surfaces- even your skin- so take care during the first 5 washes.

Store away from direct sunlight, and carefully hand wash in cold water when needed. Do not wring but gently blot, reshape while damp, and air dry in the shade.

• depth 41cm
• width 51cm
• strap length 85cm

This unique piece is part of the heritage project 2023 by LJ struthers and the maker, a creative response to the beauty, longevity, and cultural history of its fabric components.

Every piece is designed and made in Hobart in a spirit of care for the craftsmanship of the past.

With you we share a respect for vintage and antique textiles which should not be abandoned to dust, but celebrated and worn, re-mended and reimagined, part of the fabric of a beautiful life.
