Ever since this post, I have been seeing an influx of Shibori upholstery. Here are my favorites from this week:
today’s inspiration is from Katy Katazome, Co-founder @storymfg & @wornpublications. I found her images and became hooked….scroll through her instagram and you will be too.

Today’s inspiration comes from Bluemics in Okayama, Japan. Kimiko’s pottery reminds me of Indigo dyeing, not only because of the colors, but some pieces appear almost like they were pleated or folded. She hand paints each line with a cobalt underglaze and then the pieces are glost-fired in a gas-fired kiln for twelve hours.
Usually when we go to the desert we camp, but this geodesic dome could change that if we ever get to Joshua Tree.
Today’s inspiration is derived from Reform School in Silverlake, Los Angeles. They currently have a Shibori Tipi in their brick and mortar store and it’s perfection. You can also buy it online here. This one of a kind beauty was hand-dyed by Graham Keegan in LA.

I am so taken with these master Shibori artists. I can’t believe how fast and precise they are!

Lately, Japanese Boro has been catching my attention. The way the fabric (mostly Indigo) is patched, mended, and layered is truly unique and embodies such a rich history of those who once used the materials. Remodelista has a great feature, which describes this beautiful technique.
