The jackets and vests shown above are hand-dyed using the ancient Japanese art form of shibori.  Each piece of

white fabric is clamped, pleated, tied or otherwise manipulated to create a unique pattern.  The piece of fabric
is then dyed with various color combinations to create a one-of-a-kind piece of fabric.  Our garments are then
created from these pieces that we have hand-dyed.   Many times, the piece of fabric requires multiple dye baths
to achieve the desired look.

All jackets and kimonos are available in a variety of marbled  and hand dyed colors and can be purchased
with or without the matching blouse.

The pieces shown above have all been marbled.  We floated paints on a liquid in a large tray, then raked
and combed the floating paints into patterns.  We laid a piece of white fiber on top of the floating paint
to create the pattern.  Then, we created these one-of-a-kind garments.
