The Story

UQNATU The Story

The Babylonian word uqnatu is the earliest known reference to indigo dyed cloth. The ancient cuneiform writing likens the wool that has been dipped many times into the dye as having the rich color of lapis lazuli and also the deep blue of the infinite sky.

Indigo is universal: it draws on traditions and techniques from all over the world.

Indigo is timeless: it has been transforming cloth from pre-history to the 21st century.

Indigo is durable and divine. Wear it with purpose.

We believe in small, local production, the timeless beauty of raw denim and natural fibers without additional chemical processes, thinking before buying, consuming less, and wearing your clothes for many years. We hope you will love Uqnatu as much as we do.
