about  Caroline  Harper

French native Caroline Harper’s work reflects a deep appreciation for indigo’s connection to the past and its potential for a bright future. After studying resist-dyeing techniques in Japan, she launched CHI Design Indigo in Columbia, South Carolina. There, she creates intricate textiles using only natural fiber and indigo dye pigment from plants her team grows and processes in South Carolina. She is currently focused on home and fashion design, wedding accessories, Farm-to-Fabric Indigo Harvests and workshops, and developing indigo kits for middle schoolers. Caroline’s work has been featured in Southern Living, Columbia Living Magazine, Turkey Red Journal, and Charleston Magazine, and was granted an American Made designation from Martha Stewart.
