Last weekend I was in Bloomington, Indiana and I saw the most incredible Indigo pieces I have ever seen (the polka dot table runner was especially amazing). After doing a little research and talking to a couple people in town, I found out that the creators are Rowland & Chinami Ricketts. Even more incredible is that Rowland is currently an Assistant Professor in Textiles at Indiana University’s Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Art! The couple grows their own Indigo, Rowland hand-dyes, and Chinami hand weaves the fabric. I love that they are immersed in every stage of process.
