INDIGO PRESSED NAPKIN
The Indigo Pressed Napkin started with studio experiments with the Japanese technique of tatakizome to use a small batch of surplus Indigofera tinctoria leaves. The technique uses a gentle hammering gesture to create a botanical imprint. It is most commonly used on paper or textiles. The imprint holds well with basic, natural colour-fast treatment to the textile.
The Nila studio took this minimal but expressive technique to artisans at Indigo Design in Rudrapur, Uttarakhand and the conversation grew into a collaboration. The napkins were printed using leaves from Indigo Design’s farm and hand-stitched by the artisans. The crisp, handwoven linen base was made at the Kanhirode Weaver’s Cooperative Society in Kannur, Kerala. Linen, usually woven on heavy-duty factory machines, changes structure considerably when adapted to handloom. The openness of the weave lends this napkin a textured lightness and breathability.
The Press Indigo Napkin can be purchased with the matching tablecloth for a complete set.
Composition & Care
100% handwoven linen with natural indigo leaf print details
Hand wash separately in cold water and line dry in the shade. The natural indigo leaf imprint may fade slightly over time, with exposure to direct sunlight. The textile may carry subtle irregularities - this is a part of the beauty of handwoven textiles.
