It's finally here! The long-awaited container from India has arrived with one-of- a-kind home furnishings and textile designs by Indigo's owners, Daniel Sullivan and Cara Miya Davies-Reid. Indigo is blooming with explosive color; the colors and textures will dazzle your senses and help preserve the memory of spring and summer through the coming seasons. Some of the most impressive quilts, furnishings and accessories have been created from antique, cotton, Bengali quilts. Daniel sorted through a thousand antique quilts from Northern India to bring you this stunning collection. The quilts, pictured below, were block printed with natural dyes and hand-stitched by a women's group in Northern India.
Indigo also offers a wide selection of block printed, Bengali pillow cases made from the reclaimed quilts. They are available in 16'x16' throw pillows and Euro shams.
Pictured below is an over-the-shoulder bag and clutch purse designed by Daniel and Cara. The bag and clutch are made from reclaimed, antique Bengali textiles. Each purse from Indigo's collection is unique and offers styles ranging from tribal prints to classic floral motifs. The bags and clutches provide interior, zippered pockets and outer zippered closures. Depending upon the chosen print, these bags can be used as every-day casual totes or can add a nice accent and convenience to an ensemble for an evening outing on Maui.
The Bengali bliss also extends to home furnishings. It is easy to create the perfect, romantic, cozy nook with these pouffes and chowkies made from the soft, cotton quilts. The chowkies, or small stools, have a beautiful mango wood base.
