Discover New Designers: Indigo Handloom

June 29, 2005 by LauraD
shefinds |

The popularity of pashmina introduced the wonder of the wrap to a new generation of fashion mavens. The pashmina craze may have died down, but we haven’t forgotten how much a wrap can define an outfit, not to mention its versatile uses. Journalist turned designer Smita Paul issues in the next wave of luxury by bringing handloomed wraps from India to the American market with her Indigo Handloom label. While covering a story on the Indian textile industry, Paul discovered entire villages skilled in the ancient art of hand weaving and dyeing some of the finest fabrics in the world. She then set out to mix these techniques with classic elements of Western design. The result is the lovely line of handmade stoles and wraps that make up Indigo Handloom. Paul makes pieces that are fit for both a leisurely stroll or a night at the opera, but her most exquisite offering is a cloth called muga. Known as “the world’s most exclusive fabric” because of it’s scarcity, this fine silk has a natural golden hue, so it is never dyed, though it is sometimes mixed with colored fabrics to give them a bit of shine. Many believe that muga brings good fortune to those who wear it, making it a great gift or a lucky indulgence. You can wrap yourself up in spun gold and other refinements at Indigohandloom.com, and be sure to visit their “how to wear” section for fashionable inspiration.
