George Fabric:

George is a beautiful and unique fabric, which must be handled carefully to maintain its look. Because of the design of the fabric each garment made from it will have it's own style. Cover George garments with a plastic bag to protect them from snagging and avoid displaying them in an area where they will be handled excessively. George must be dry-cleaned.

Indigo Hand Spun Fabric
 

Indigo fabric is one of the most popular fabrics from Africa. Symbolic of wealth and prosperity, this fabric is admired by almost every ethnic group on the continent. Even the Taureg have been called the "purple nomads" because of their extensive use of this cloth. The cotton fabric is first hand-woven on looms and then dyed using leaves from the indigo plant that have been beaten into a pulp, rolled into balls, and then left to dry in the sun for two to three days. After this, they are mixed in an ash and water solution that acts as a fixitive for the indigo dye. The fabric is dyed using the tie-dye or plain-print method, and the excess dye is removed by hammering the fabric with rubber mallets. Indigo dye often rubs off onto the skin, so do not be surprised if this happens when you handle the fabric. 6'x45". Made in Mali.
