Indigo Island

ABOUT INDIGO ISLAND

Indigo Island is not just about shirts. It’s about passion, care and craft, woven into a unique concept.

Indigo Island is a collaboration between two sisters, Torty Conner and Lulu Williams. With a shared interest in natural fabrics, colour and with an eye for detail, their vision unites superb authentic artisanship with distinctive contemporary design.

These block printed shirts for men combine the very best Indian textiles with original designs and high quality tailoring to create clothes that are stylish, relaxed and fun to wear.

The idea grew from a summer trip to Europe. Travelling with her boyfriend, the Indian actor Asif Basra, Torty was amazed at people’s reactions whenever Asif was out and about wearing one of his custom-made block printed shirts; individual in design, casual and soft-cotton comfortable – perfect for a stroll through the morning market, barbecue lunch on the beach, or a bar at sunset.

Everyone wanted to know where he got them. They were one-offs, he explained, from back home in India…

Lulu had some made for her teenage son; her husband, the actor Hugh Bonneville, was next in the queue. Then came requests from family and friends.

The idea took flight.

Indigo Island brings together the sisters’ creative talents and they are excited to be offering their unique line of men’s shirts exclusively online at indigoisland.co.uk.

Torty and Lulu hope you will enjoy wearing Indigo Island shirts as much as they have enjoyed creating them.
ABOUT THE NAME

Indigo evokes the timelessness of textile traditions, while the romantic imagery of islands from around the world, after which each shirt is named, conjures up colour and light, relaxation and adventure.

ABOUT THE SHIRTS

The shirts are made from finely woven cotton cambric with an even 60-thread count warp and weft weave, giving them softness and an even grain. The fabric falls beautifully… perfect for cool, comfortable summer clothing.

The cotton is then hand block printed by skilled artisans in Jaipur, India – proud masters of a heritage craft that has been a specialty of the region since the 17th Century. Intricate mirror image wood blocks are expertly carved, one for each layer of colour, then each carefully printed on the fabric by hand.

The fabrics move on to Delhi, where they are washed in preparation for cutting and stitching. Each shirt is then hand cut and tailored, so that the patterns match across the plackets and pockets, giving them seamless quality.

As my mother always says when she wants a drink outside ‘acceptable’ drinking hours, ‘it’s 6 o’clock somewhere’. With Indigo Island shirts, it’s always summer somewhere. They are the perfect shirts – in any season you’ll feel instant summer. The fit is wonderful; we haven’t met the man yet who doesn’t look wonderful in them. The fusion of Britain and India in these shirts is precisely the reason we decided not to restrict items on the Country Mile to manufacture in Britain only. Whilst Indigo Island is a British company, the block printing and fabrics from India, and the inspirations for the patterns from everywhere from Cuba to Santorini via Pacific Ocean islands make them the unique items that they are. The price is amazing, they wash and iron beautifully, yet they look a million british pounds, on anyone from Hugh Bonneville to Richard E Grant, to my 20-something sons and not-at-all famous husband.
