The story

700 plant species on our continent contain indigo, which is mainly used for dyeing textiles. Nowadays everybody uses chemical dyes but Heartwear changed that.

Heartwear was created in 1993 by Lideweij and her group of fashion designer friends. It is a non-profit organization that collaborates with artisans by helping them produce their products on a larger scale. Similarly in Benin, where these beautiful indigo pillows are made.

The dye is removed from the liana Lonchocarpus Cyanescens, which only grows there. Tradition tells us that the lianas were donated by the gods to the women. The knowledge of the craft is passed from mother to daughter. The fabrics are immersed in a bath with lime & leaves, thereafter the beautiful deep blue color is obtained by the oxidation process.

Open your mind for new experiences & admire the beauty of unknown products, created and designed with respect for a sustainable home
