At our 203 Popup Market, we had a few vendors that we loved seeing all season long and Indiigo Culture is one of them. They are an eco-conscious brand that puts the planet and people first.
Shop here and experience sustainable fashion with modern touches from mostly Asia-Pacific countries. Everything is hand crafted and beautiful!
1. Can you tell me the background of Indiigo Culture? What inspired your creation?
“For us, stories have always had a great power. They give shape and meaning to people and
places with different perspectives, traditions, and ways of life. We believe it is difficult to live a
meaningful and conscious life if we are unaware of the people and their stories behind the
items we use from day to day. Hence, we created Indiigo Culture to tell stories. Every piece of
clothing, accessory, and homeware we create and curate holds a unique story – focused on our philosophy of putting people and the planet first. It connects our customers with the creators, making our items more valuable and meaningful, countering the faceless and disposable consumerist mindset.
Our amazing makers and designers come from all over Southeast Asia. This collective of talents and artisans bring you beautiful everyday items with an aspect of sustainability. These items also reflect the desire to celebrate our diverse cultures and heritage as part of our modern lifestyle. Our makers and designers are excited to share the skills and traditions that go into their creations with you. We invite you to live consciously with us!”
2. How did you come up with the name “Indiigo Culture”?
“Indiigo Culture is a story of big dreams, better futures, and to share our varied roots. Our name draws deeply from our myriad of cultures, seeking inspiration from our Asian traditions.
Homage is paid to our unique cultures and different ways of life through the usage of
traditional craftsmanship, techniques, and materials in our items.”

any point of the journey. We simply ask that they are willing to change their mindsets and
methods. Particularly for talents at the start of this process, we incubate and nurture them
towards green and ethical progress. It can be in how the materials are sourced, the
manufacturing or development process and workplace conditions. At the core of it, our items
