Who and how?
These fisherman wrap around pants organic dyes are produced by Pi Aw in a small sustainable production community at the foot of the Chom Thong Hills in North Thailand.
We got to know Mrs Aw during our last trip through the wonderful mountains around west of Chiang Mai. She explained to every step of the production process in detail.
They use only natural, organic dyes and her efforts are driven by the wish to preserve these ancient techniques so they are not to be forgotten. Here business is usually specialized in producing traditional Thai costumes and their 4 Star OTOP award guarantees a certain quality standard which we did not doubt at any point. Pi Aw new all the different Thai fisherman pants seam styles from the top of her head.
The dyes are fixated with plant based glue so please wash them carefully and expect that they change their character over time. No artificial chemicals are used during the whole process making it extremely sustainable. The whole process is time consuming. The indigo dyes need about 3 days to be absorbed by the yarn. Later the yarns are woven in traditional looms by hand. Chom Thong is widely known for their weaving techniques and exceptional style.
