Bluehanded Ltd

Bluehanded Ltd

BlueHanded create exclusively designed, hand-crafted soft furnishings made by artisans employing techniques passed down through generations. The patterns are created by our indigo Master with an ancient resist paste technique using natural cotton, indigo, soy and rock lime. The ethical and sustainable fabrics use ingredients and materials that are locally grown and sourced. Working with London-based artists our fabrics uniquely reinterpret and revere the age-old art of indigo. Supporting the designer-makers who collaborate in the development of the fabrics is as important as delivering a quality product that customers can enjoy and feel good about.
