Collaboration with Living Blue
For Collection Numéro 4, a.guery meets Living Blue to create Couture and exclusive pieces based on their ancestral know how.
‘Living Blue’ is a true hub for human and craft developments., creating natural dyed textiles and producing indigo from indigofera tinctoria plants.
Their specificity is to sublimate traditional know how of Indigo dyeing as well as a technique of delicate quilting.
'Living Blue' is a social company, a cooperative, gathering many artisans. Among those some are master dyers and others master quilters.
The atelier is a modern workshop built by a contemporary bangladeshi architect with local materials. It is surrounded by rice and indigo fields.
Artisans are selected for their skills, some even work at home. This flexibility allows to grow business according to everyone’s daily life, between fields and family.
Natural beauty of the people and respect made the experience even stronger.
Collaboration has been showcased at Biennale Emergences 2016, special exhibition
