Yesterday Amsterdam is turned into (indigo) Blue for the 4 days event “Denim days”. A event for fashion forward aficionados of denim, for professionals as well as consumers. The Amsterdam Denim Days events is organised in the Westergasfabriek and also through the city center.
Lidewij Edelkoort created Heartwear in 1993 together with a group of stylist friends. Heartwear is a non-profit association that encourage handcraft. They work together with astisans to create their products. The product will be shipped over worldwide. What makes this non-profit organisation so special is that they want to show the skills, knowledge, culture and environment of the region the products are made. I want to show you the indigo textiles they made with artisans in Benin. They are so beautiful!!Beautiful handmade textiles by Heartwear Marie TailleferHeartwear was at Merci’ s shop in Paris for a beautiful installation called “UNIVERSAL BLUE”
