These 100% cotton placemats were hand tied between blocks and dyed multiple times in natural indigo. Although similar in design, each one is slightly different, adding to the beauty of the collection.

Shibori is a process. This piece has been washed, rinsed and made ready for the dye, the resists applied, dyed in the colour(s) you see here, rinsed, the resists removed and then washed, hung to dry and then ironed. Shibori is a very detailed process; each piece must be treated with love, dedication and respect and as a result, it becomes a work of art that cannot be duplicated.
The Japanese aesthetic of “wabi-sabi” embraces imperfection and transience through its preference of natural, asymmetrical and simple design. It is a logical companion to shibori, as the natural fibres, manual process, basic yet elegant designs and the unpredictability of the results are integral to the beauty of each work.
