Collection SS2015: Les Cles Shibori

This is Part II of the return to the roots of the history of colour.  Today, I feature this artisanal line that celebrates a second natural pigment: madder, the original red.

Bagru clay, whose nuances extend from red to orange, is a mixture of clay and madder roots, the composition a secret known only to our indian artisans. 

"Shibori" is a Japanese word which illustrates all the tie & dye techniques. They are made through the tying, the folding, the sewing or embroidery of a fabric. This ancestral technique makes each scarf unique.
