About the Dips


Tamay and Me Jackets
21Dips / 6 Dips??

It’s all about saturation of colour.
Literally how many times the cloth has been dipped in the naturally fermented indigo vat.

This is the traditional cloth of the White Thai people. They make their own clothes from indigo that looks almost black. This indigo work is exceptional.
It does start to look a bit more blue with time but will always stay a very strong, deep colour.
The cotton cloth is dipped 3 times a day over a period of 7 days, the cloth must dry in-between
each dip, so it depends how sunny it is.

After selling the 21 dip jackets for a year Tamay & Me realised that is would be nice to have a
lighter indigo blue. The same cloth is used but it is just not dyed so much.

This cotton cloth has been dipped 3 times a day for 2-3 days.
