Did you spot the jackets that the Leicester City players wore on Boxing Day as they came out to face Liverpool? The jackets are part of a brand new Foxes clothing range, the ‘From Leaves to Lively’ Thai Dye II Collection.
The latest Thai Natural Dye range, borne from age-old techniques from Thailand’s rural communities, is on sale now in the Foxes Fanstore at King Power Stadium and on shop.LCFC.com.
King Power’s most recent community project has returned to Baan Kiriwong in Nakhon Si Thammarat province to celebrate pride in the local knowledge of the region’s inhabitants and is the latest social responsibility project in its native Thailand.
Using familiar items commonplace in their region alongside local, indigenous wisdom, the villagers have given life to new creations, resulting in a high-quality product that generates sustainable income for the community.
The light brown, a unique tie-dye colour of Baan Kiriwong, comes from the sato pods famous in the southern region of Thailand – one of a variety of shades that also includes blue-grey from indigo leaves, yellow from Indian almond leaves and peach from the mangosteen leaf.
The unique, patterned fabrics of Baan Kiriwong are formed by wrapping stones and other coarse objects with cloth – then tying them in a back and forth pattern with rope – leaving space for the colour to soak into the fabric.
