The Hopsack throw is woven with indigo threads that have been dyed at natural indigo vats in Sawantwadi, Maharashtra. The deep hue of the indigo indicates multiple dips, which requires an experienced hand. The indigo threads have been woven with the natural cotton linen at a studio in Gurugram.
Draped over the edge of a sofa or worn as a generously sized stole, the Hopsack Throw is a versatile accessory made for a sense of simple comfort.
Nila’s journey can be traced to its meaning in Hindi: blue. It refers to the art of creating the ancient, plant-based indigo dye. The word stems from the Greek Indikon, meaning ‘from India’.
The Nila Collection explores natural indigo - incorporating the ancient, mysterious dye into handmade weaves, prints, and embroideries while honoring the simplicity of its dip-dyed shades.
