A floaty, lightweight indigo blue chambray. I was desperate for a chambray with a beautiful deep colour and an incredible, lightweight yet completely opaque - so here's our beautiful answer!
The fabric is yarn dyed, so you get a beautiful blend of white threads along the weft (left to right) combined with a stunning, deep green indigo. It's very dry to the touch, and has an almost linen look to it - without the constant creasing. The fabric is incredibly soft and feels lovely against your skin. The fabric has been completely handmade, but could well have come straight from a Scandinavian design studio.
The cotton is organic (although this is not certified), meaning that it is grown without pesticides and that the fibres are totally biodegradable without leaching any toxic chemicals back into the ground. As this fabric is hand-woven, there are some small weaving irregularities, although this does not affect the quality or overall look of the fabric. The spinning and weaving is done in a cooperative and certified Fair Trade by the WFTO. As the fabric is a hand-made product, the process uses virtually no electricity - including in the spinning process! Creases iron out easily.

Suitable for the washing machine & tumble dryer.
Turn the machine down to 30 degrees for a more environmentally friendly wash. In Europe alone, if every household turned its washing temperature down to 30°C, we could save 12 million tons of CO2 a year
