Indigo boro jackets:  “I love how all they age and yet still last; it’s all about the wear that gives each jacket character. And as a pigment itself, the more you wear indigo the it the more it changes, in a really nice way. I have a few really small pieces of Japanese indigo fabric, but I’ve also started collecting textiles from gypsy tribes, which has similarly intricate needlework: jewelry, little pouches, camel bags. Other than Morocco I’ve never been to Africa, but I want to go, because they have really nice textiles there, too.”
