Meet the Maker: Ricketts Indigo
Husband and wife duo Rowland and Chinami Ricketts, are the power force behind Ricketts Indigo. Operating out of their micro-farm (or 'farmette' as Rowland's Mother likes to call it) - the pair not only grow and harvest their own indigo, but also create beautiful hand-made and hand-woven items.
We chat with Rowland on what keeps them inspired and how they hope their small venture makes big waves in changing the world for the better.
Let's start at the very beginning! How did you and Chinami meet? How lucky to have found something you are both so mutually passionate about!
What first inspired you to start using indigo?
I never get tired of using indigo though. It’s new and magical in a primal way every time something comes out of the dye vat and oxidizes, turning from green to blue right in front of me. I’ve seen it tens of thousands of times, but I never get tired of it!
