The book is very detailed and helps you to really get a grip on the magic of indigodyed blue textiles.

From backside of the book:
The first book from the founder of iconic outdoors brand Sandqvist, Heavy-Duty Sewing is all about using needle and thread, a sewing machine and stiff materials to make your own practical, hardwearing functional objects.
There are projects here for both experienced home sewers and novices who find the idea of sewing fun but may not have come up with a suitable project, or who have never even used a sewing machine before. The book explains the basics of making textile products, which materials to use, the equipment and work techniques. Ten projects for countryside, town and travel include a hiking backpack, a knife holder, a tote bag, a fruit basket and an apron.
There is no difficult stitching here; you simply need some patience and attention to detail. It’s amazingly good fun and you will end up with handsome objects which you can take pride in using. Welcome to heavy-duty sewing!
Anton Sandqvist founded the company Sandqvist in 2004, in partnership with his brother Daniel and friend Sebastian. Today Sandqvist operates in over 30 countries around the world. For many years he has sewn his own equipment for hiking, mountaineering and motorbiking.
