Mjölk presents: LATrE

November 17th, 2013


Last night we had our opening of the LATrE indigo exhibition and capsule shop here at Mjölk. We are all huge fans of LATrE, and thought it would be very interesting to ask Brian to come up with a conceptual collection of home wares utilizing his impeccable sourcing skills, craftsmanship and of course his Indigo dyes.


In the front window Brian’s friend and merchandiser Jodee set up a beautiful display taking all of the tools from Brian’s workshop and transplanting to the store to show the equipment used in his dyeing process. This combined with the Dead stock WWII army tent turns the tools into artifacts of survival.

You can see the mason jars in the background with indigo dye.


Bamboo stirring sticks.



In the front / middle half of the showroom, Brian’s drop cloth from his studio is used as a rug.


Deadstock wool military socks with various Indigo dyeing methods.


Clothing rack with just a tiny sampling of the items that are currently available.


Japanese scarf.


Along with the clothing articles, Brian made some incredible Boro-esque patchwork placemats made from military sailing fabric.


Only 6 available!



Also, indigo coasters!


We hope to see you while the exhibition is on!

  1. Psst: dyeing is to colour fabric, dying to to cease living.

  5. Hello – a truly perfect presentation. Is that an indigo related publication next to the coasters in the second to last shot? Possible to obtain ? I’m in New Zealand. Thank you !

  6. Dear Diana,

    I wish it was a publication! It is actually a stack of the invite cards for the exhibition.
