MERCHANT & MILLS • Hand Printed Cotton • Flight • Indigo
Flight in Indigo by Merchant and Mills is a unique hand block printed fabric with a modern geometric design. What I particularly love about this fabric is the fact that this contemporary pinwheel design has been made using ancient traditional techniques. Running along the selvedge on one side there's a fine row of metallic stitching which could be incorporated into your make.
Printed in Jaipur, traditional hand printed and dyed techniques are used to make this beautiful rural cloth.
As with the rest of the designs in this collection, this summer weight fabric would look fabulous made up as a lightweight top or dress, but any of the dress patterns by Merchant and Mills would look equally good, as would skirts and shirts.
For the first couple of washes, place the fabric in the washing machine drum at 30 or 40 degrees with a handful of table salt. This will help fix the dye to prevent it running, however Indigo will continue to fade over time as it will never truly fix.
