Unfolding Pigment

The dyed textiles and wooden pieces are products of a reservation technique called Itajime shibori. The cloth is folded and sandwiched between two pieces of oak wood, which are pressed together with clamps. The wooden blocks prevent the dye from penetrating the fabric they cover. The dimension of the wood determines the pattern on the fabric.

Natural pigments were used as colourants: rhamnus and genista for the yellows, chlorophyllin for the greens, cochineal and madder for the reddish and pinkish hues. The textile collection consists of cotton, silk and wool fabrics.
