Earth Indigo Fabric – a Canadian Online Fabric Store {+ discount & giveaway!}

2016 June 20

Good Monday to you! I’m happy to introduce the 19th Canadian Online Fabric Store in this series to you today! Monica from Earth Indigo will be joining us for an interview, a little bit about her shop and a giveaway & discount for you!

Earth Indigo is not the “typical” quilting cotton online shop I usually interview. I’m excited that they carry handloom and hand printed fabrics from all over the world, batiks, organic cotton and hemp based fabrics, jersey and tencel knits and chambray. When I talked to Monica she mentioned that she loves minimalist draped clothing, so she stocks linens and knits too!

The idea of Earth Indigo was conceived in October 2015 and my etsy store started in January this year, with the online store starting a month later. I was a full time stay at home mom taking care of my twins for 18 months and I started craving something else to focus on in my life. I love fabric, even more than sewing itself. I also started to get into weaving. I can’t help but want to give other weavers in the world a channel to get their crafts out to crafters in this part of the world.” ~ Monica, Earth Indigo

Thread Riding Hood: What was your main goal when starting Earth Indigo?

Monica: I love ethnic fabric and would like to introduce beautifully handcrafted fabric that reflects cultural beauty to the craft community in North America. Also I believe crafters are kind-hearted – that we can contribute to make this world better by using ethical and environmental friendly fabric.

Thread Riding Hood: What is your favorite type of sewing project? 

Monica: I like making clothing as well as some other useful gift items, eg. nursing cover, eye pillow, cushion, pouch etc.

Thread Riding Hood: What is something coming up in the near future that you are especially excited about?

Monica: I have some beautiful fair trade handwoven fabric from Guatemala that were woven on backstrap looms coming up soon. I’m also exploring handprinted fabric from China and India that hopefully will see them at the store in the summer.

Thread Riding Hood: Thanks Monica! 

Hooray! Earth Indigo is offering a discount at their shop until July 31, 2016!

Use the code TRHCHEERS15 to get 15% off your order.

I’m so excited, Earth Indigo is giving away this gorgeous hand printed batik fabric – one roll each to two lucky winners! It is a fair trade vintage styled batik printed by North Thailand Hmong Hill Tribe artisans on cotton fabric. So pretty! Each winner will get one roll of fabric 12″ wide by 5 1/2 yards. Think of all of the amazing things you could make with that much goodness!

This giveaway is open to everyone world-wide, from today (June 20th) until midnight June 27, 2016 (PST). Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter – and if you don’t have Facebook to sign in with, just use your name and email address. There’s a “click to enter”, no social media login entry too!
