This wastebasket is created by woodwork artisans in the Philippines with our Indigo Vines fabric by the yard, inspired by our iconic St. Frank Malian textile. Since ancient times, from opulent Egypt to stark West Africa, fabric has been dyed a mysterious, beautiful blue. The indigo color, or "gold blue," is a symbol of the link between heaven and earth. Through a careful process, indigo can produce a vast palette of blue hues, from the palest sky to the deepest midnight. Dye vats alone take a full week to prepare and require daily stirring. The un-dyed cloth is pinched, sewn, and tied according to precise patterns. Once dye is applied to the material, the ties are removed, revealing patterns of lines, shells, dots, or tracery.
