Inspired by their family's past
Sarah May, the Director of The Indigo Mill, was intrigued by the history of the mill and the designs her grandfather had worked on. She delved into the archives and discovered traditional cloth patterns produced on the looms that still stand in the mill today. The next step to bringing these design back to life was to investigate the yarn stocks, to start producing woven cloth. In her discoveries, she found that they were holding large amounts of yarns which were unusable on tufting machinery but were effectively brand new. A perfect experiment was born - to recycle the kilos of accured yarn and use for weaving.
