Indigo People Tsuru Scarf

Yesterday I received this early X-Mas present from my friends from Indigo People. Indigo People was born out of love for traditional craftsmanship and the beauty of natural indigo. The brand is a homage to the artisans who keep up their heritage and to people with a great affection for authentic handicrafts. All their products are woven by hand and coloured with natural indigo. I got the Tsuru model which is width: 45cm / length: 180cm. I really like the intensive blue colour and the weaving structure of the scarf. The colour will age very nice over time. Many thanks guys and all the best for you too in 2015 with Indigo People! See you soon.

Butts and Shoulders Leather Apron

We made with our own Butts and Shoulders brand a new family member, a leather apron. The apron is made from natural vegetable tanned leather and is all made by hand in Holland. The leather will age very nice within time, especially when you will use this apron everyday. Some months ago we made a great collaboration apron with Beerze Beer and the result after wearing the sample for a couple months is amazing. You can check it out here below. It has a deep cognac colour already. Our 2nd Beerze Beer collab product, a beer bottle opener, is also attached on the apron.

We made the aprons for craftsman like tattoo artists, barbers, shoemakers, painters, cooks, etc. People who have an authentic job, professionals or just for the hobby. We added a lot of details on it and to make it very special the first run is made in 20 numbered pieces only. Check the apron below, it’s now available on the Butts and Shoulders website.

Pike Brothers: Long John Burnt Red 1922

The winter is coming so it’s getting colder. Time to put on your Long John’s under your jeans. Pike Brothers from Germany made a nice red one. The origins of this historic piece dates back to the 17th century. But it was not until the late 1900′s and especially amongst cowboys where long johns had their peak. This pair of Long John was made after an original pattern from the 1930s. It is comfortable and in combination with their brushed jersey also very warm. Prepare yourself with a Long John.
