Just finished the workshop "Body & clothes at Designskolan, Ölandsfolkhögskola. A week full of creativity, structure, transformation, shapes and different sketching techniques in both fabric and paper. So much fun to hold those one week workshops with students. Thank you for a really creative week!

Aachadiya


We have received all the 21 selected pieces of Aachadiyas! 9 meters of fabrics that are used as table covers over several layers of jute fabric when block printing. The aachadiya fabrics are made of cotton and can be used for several months before they are rejected. During our Artist in Residence in Ajrakhpur we selected fabrics and also started with pattern making and made prototypes in collaboration with a tailor in Dohri village in the rural part of Kutch.


The beautiful traces of all the printed patterns cover the surface. And the fabrics becomes like a map of history.


We reuse the fabrics and will make a limited edition of kimonos that will be released in 2021. 40 pieces, each will be unique and carry its own story. Our aim is to reuse materials as well as support local crafts people and always work with as little impact on the environment as possible.

CULTIVATION

From seed to dye

Our indigo babies are doing fine! We have started to cultivate indigo seeds in our green house. We cultivate two different indigo and will use different methods of fermentation both wet and dry to extract the indigo pigment out from the leaves.
