CHAT Seed to Textile: Indigo Bag
2021 | Illustration & Product | Centre for Heritage Arts & Textile (CHAT)
Rooted in the heritage and innovative spirit of the textile industry in Hong Kong, Centre for Heritage Arts & Textile (CHAT) has developed the Seed to Textile programme, a year-long indigo community project that traces textile manufacturing down to its origin. The indigo dye used in the CHAT Originals Seed to Textile: Indigo Bag is produced from our home-grown indigo plants. The three silkscreen-printed designs on the bags are created by Hong Kong-based designer UUendy Lau, who was inspired by iconic local plants. A series of dyeing workshops open to the public was also conducted from September to November 2021, during the Seed to Textile exhibition period.
The collection is available for purchase at CHAT Shop (offline and online).
