KIRIKO

December 26, 2014

I recently discovered the company Kiriko (based in Portland). They specialize in making goods from Japanese textiles and offer the most beautiful scarves, bandanas, and so much more. Also, some of the scarves come with a little “scent stick” that can be places behind the label so that you always smell like your signature scent. Here is a video that describes the process.

TOOLS & PROCESS

December 13, 2014

This week I am experimenting with shapes and compression tools. I still love using rubber bands, but I decided that these $0.99 clamps are essential. The whole idea is to prevent the Indigo from penetrating the fabric. In turn, the white patterns in your piece will reflect whatever shape of wood you are using (or clamp, plastic, etc.).

DESERT DYEING

December 7, 2014

I spent last week in the Chihuahuan Desert (far west Texas), which ended up being an ideal backdrop for this new batch of textiles. I’m so happy with how the color pops off the desert floor.

I am still working on posting everything, but some are now available in the shop.

LOVE: HOLLIN TEXTILES

December 5, 2014

An Australian Etsy shop, Hollin Textiles caught my eye with this Shibori woven wall hanging. The fabric was prepared using the arashi (pole wrapping) technique and the result is so beautiful. I am also loving that each piece is attached to driftwood.
