The upcoming series of ‘Be Picky’ is going to be colour inspired! Colour is one of the missing ingredients your wardrobe (and life 😉 could use after all the black and white basics. So let’s start this rainbow with the colour of water and sky: blue!
1. Floria Rayon Top by Komodo
Made from Rayon, a fiber manufactured from natural (cellulose) fibers (in this case from responsibly managed forests just like Tencel). Komodo is a British brand that uses only natural materials. Since the 90’s they promote the use of organic cotton, hemp, bamboo and Tencel. Working closely with their producers who they visit at least two months a year. The design, the colours and the special craft techniques ensure that Komodo’s collection has a characteristic appearance.
2. Scarf by Indigo People
At Indigo People you see how the love for traditional crafts and natural indigo has come together in a unique collection of scarves. The scarves are woven by hand in Thailand and Laos with the consent of the chiefs of the weaver’s villages, and dyed with natural indigo. You can recognize the scarfs by the beautiful deep indigo colour and the rugged look that is caused by the handiwork. Because of this intensive process, each scarf is unique in texture and print.

You are my blue crayon,
the one I never have enough of,
the one I use to colour my sky.
