Bleu Anglais

Bleu Anglais

Antique and vintage indigo folk textiles from rural China personally sourced by Noel. These are the simple handwoven cotton fabrics of everyday country folk and were rarely seen outside of a village life now almost completely disappeared. Traditional dowry and wrapping cloths, quilt covers and panels combine floral and animal motifs with an array of auspicious symbols rich in history and folklore. Most pieces date from the first half of the 20th century, some from the end of the 19th century and display their age with the characteristic fading we similarly associate with our beloved indigo blue jeans.
