Eskayel and Threads of Life in Vogue

Incredibly honored to be part of a collaboration with Eskayel to create a new indigo ikat collection, which has now been featured in Vogue magazine! To browse the whole collection, head to the Eskayel shop. To read the Vogue article, click here. 

To craft these beautiful textiles, she partnered with Threads of Life, a fair-trade organization that works to alleviate poverty in rural Indonesia. It was a slow process, but the end results are striking. The new collection includes large floor pillows, bedding sets, and specially made frames to hang and display the swaths of indigo ikat fabrics. For a Brooklyn-based design studio, the beauty of Bali never felt so close.

Here’s what they had to say about Threads of Life:

“The crafts are often made in the rural parts of Bali, and across Indonesia. Ubud’s Threads of Life has beautiful batik and ikat sarongs that make intricate, decorative wall hangings. Profits are returned to the villages where they are made – 40 cooperatives on 11 Indonesian islands.”
