Hello friends. The lovely weavers who make all of your favorite linens, towels, scarves and bedding at Indigo Traders have been severely affected by the recent earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. You have seen their photos throughout our store and have received weaver postcards with your towels over the years. These kind folks are faced with staggering challenges ahead. Please consider donating to our GoFundMe campaign to help our weavers rebuild. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
The photo you see here is the home and workshop of our main weaver and dear friend. The devastation is clear. This community needs our help. Thank you for your support. Samir and Karla
Meet our weavers! These are the talented artisans creating our towels, blankets, scarves, table linens, and home textiles. It is extremely rewarding to work directly with these kind and ethical families for so many years. They have become family to us. We admire their rural weaving community that values relationships, the environment, quality workmanship and tradition.
Did you know our weavers do their weaving at home? Many have a wooden loom at home which provides an opportunity for the entire family to participate in the weaving process. This ensures the time-tested weaving techniques and designs are passed down from one generation to the next.
