Vintage Indigo Textiles

Lately I have been loving on vintage indigo textiles.  Why might you ask?  Well, it could be that vintage indigo textiles slightly resemble a good old set of broken-in blueprints (and it’s pretty easy to be attracted to the familiar don’t you think?!?)…



Or it could be that I am loving the beautiful blue colors in the new shoes my husband bought me and I am craving more of it…(P.S. These shoes are from Reef’s ‘We Heart Collection,’ which provides a platform for artisans from developing countries around the world to build better lives for themselves, their families and their communities–learn more here).

Or it could be that blue is my favorite color, so I pretty much love anything blue (indigo, navy, gunmetal, cornflower, china blue, you name it, the list goes on and on….).

But the most likely scenario is that deep indigo fabrics are so gosh darn beautiful.  The globally inspired patterns run the gamut and continue to keep me intrigued.  And to top it off, the vintage quality provides a beautiful nuance in color and rich variation which is just stunning.  If you’re not totally convinced or even sure what I’m talking about, check out some of the amazing textiles below…

And if you are wondering how to put these beauties to use, some possibilities are: headboards, throw blankets, bedding, tablecloths, pillows, and fabric for reupholstering pretty much anything!  And if you are in the market for this type of fabric, here are a few places you may want to check out: Love, AdornedImogene + WillieKyoto KimonoTribal CollectionDell Shop (and please post below if you know of any other good sources I am missing!).

So what do you think?!? Are you going to invest for your next table runner or is this not your cup of tea?  Speaking of tea, I think I am going to spend the rest of this long holiday weekend reading, relaxing and sipping on tea…
