Tie-dye Indigo Pillow by Aissata Namoko of Mali

I will be out of town from July 11th to 20th.  The gallery will not be open but the website will be working away as usual.  Orders will be shipped after July 20th.  I will be checking email mesages and should be able to repy  to inquiries.

Indigo Arts has moved upstairs to a space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I am still arranging things up here but I am open on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  I am usually in the building from Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 6, but it is definitely best to phone or email first. Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery is operating as usual.  
Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.

Aissata Namoko founded Cooperative Djiguiyaso, based in Bamako, Mali. Aissata and the artists of the cooperative use locally grown organic cotton and make pillows, scarves, and home accessories using traditional bogolan tie-dyed with indigo.

The organization is made up of 143 women and 20 men who are fighting poverty through creation and sale of textiles.  Since 1994, the coop has helped women transition to the workplace. Aissata established a training center to teach sewing, cutting, traditional cotton spinning, and natural dyeing techniques.
