Denim Blue Itajime Scarf
Red/Black Shibori Scarf
Emerald/Black Shibori Jacket
The Japanese method of shibori resist dyeing allows us to explore the relationship between colour and texture when creating a soft sculpture of wearable art, bringing a contemporary look to this ancient art form.
Taking the silk through various manipulations and dye processes, designs are created when the silk is bound tightly using string and a variety of knots and pleats to achieve luxurious and unique results.
Award winning fibre arts team, Louise is the designer and dyer while her husband Brian does all of the shibori pleating and technical work. They live on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia.
