The SUFI label was founded in 2020 by Sophie Nelissen with the aim of producing her own favorite garments in the most responsible way possible. That means: made from natural, biological substances that are obtained where possible from Europe or even from the Netherlands. She also works a lot with natural dyes, which she grows in her own garden, among other things.
Indigo is one of the most well-known and popular natural dyes from time immemorial.
In the workshop you will learn the basics of dyeing with indigo. You will get to work painting a tote bag yourself, where you will also learn to apply shibori resist-dye techniques.
