Yes, it’s time for a shop update! A few things have already flown the coop-or maybe I should say vat, since this update is mainly for new indigo pieces.
there is (or was) some silk…
and then some cotton, with some patches stitched with silk. and a silk velvet moon. a great summer weight scarf for casual wear. boro-inspired- a reminder that no scrap is too small to use or dye.
and then some more silk…double edge ombre’d of course! 100% silk, a japanese narrow width open weave~
~double arashi plus ombre on a silk cotton blend. the ombre is across the width, not the length-I like a challenge…
and how about some moons? or circles? or circles in squares? or any which way arashi?
all on lightweight silk habutai.
there’s a few more things but you get the idea…most 2nd items ship free with the first…
Like I said in the last post, the online indigo class is continuing and a new group is joining in. Fermentation is in progress!
The weather is warming up here a bit and the indigo vats are liking it. There’s a bird’s nest under the eve of the house in the star jasmine and all day I can hear them while I dye. The babies yelling for food and the parents yelling at Milo the cat who loiters in the driveway, every now and then getting dive-bombed by the mockers just making sure he keeps a distance…I’m keeping an eye on him as well. Even Milo is wondering. Must be spring.
