PROVENANCE

This bundle contains skateboard decks inspired by Indigo and Frazada textiles. The Dots & Shells Indigo print is a replica of the popular St. Frank indigo textile from Burkina Faso. In ancient times, from opulent Egypt to stark West Africa, fabric has been dyed a mysterious, beautiful blue. This is a replica of our popular St. Frank textile; the indigo color, or "gold blue," is a symbol of the link between heaven and earth. Through a careful process, indigo can produce a vast palette of blue hues; traditional dyers would ask their customers' color preferences, from the palest sky to the deepest midnight. Dye vats alone take a full week to prepare and require daily stirring. The un-dyed cloth is pinched, sewn, and tied according to precise patterns.

The Technicolor Frazada and Pinstripe Frazada decks are inspired by frazada textiles. Women from the indigenous Aymara group of Andean South America have practiced frazada weaving since pre-Colombian times. Weavers create colorful strips from hand-sheared sheep's wool on a backstrap loom. Then, two pieces are sewn together to create a frazada. Offering lively warmth and sturdy thickness, frazadas were originally used as blankets, created to protect against the chill of the Andean highlands. Today, these textiles are popular for their use as bright rugs and picnic blankets
