TRUE BLUE SHIBORI.
Indigo has a rich history with the oldest known indigo dyed fabric dating back to 6,000 years ago and was valued as a luxury product by the Greeks and the Romans.
Our Indigo shibori process is rooted in ancient Japan, where back in 1600’s the Samurai wore indigo-dyed fabrics or AI-zome under their armour to help keep bacteria from wounds. Natural indigo dyed clothing has a surprising range of characteristics such as antibacterial and odor and dirt repellent.
CLOTHING TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT.
Natural and sustainable is at the core of TJ Indigo Clothing Co. Most of our clothing is cut and sewn in Toronto in small batches and embodies 'slow fashion' philosophy. From the drawing board to compostable packaging we focus on sustainability by offering high quality, timeless designs, utilizing botanical and low impact dyes, local fabric manufacturers and suppliers and skillful craftsmanship that is hard to find.
