We have learned that a few bumps in the road on the way to an amazing find are inevitable. And so it was when we discovered a flat tire as we pulled into one of our favorite markets in Provence last summer. (It just so happens this turned out to be the first of two flats that week. Ah, the glamour of travel!) Undeterred, we continued on to shop the town’s legendary antique and pedestrian markets, where we met a woman with a spectacular collection of traditional indigo cotton fabrics from West Africa. Most of us know indigo as the traditional chemical dye used for denim. The vintage textiles we found were colored using a centuries old process involving blue pigments extracted from a variety of flora making each fabric more rich and interesting than the last. We fell so in love with these natural and elemental textiles that we bought the vendor’s entire inventory! Should you be slightly more selective, you can choose just the right indigo from our entire collection of scarves, throws, tablecloths, sheets and yardage.
