My New Favorite Etsy Store

I can’t get enough of this beautiful store by Hiroko Inuma, Hiroko Japan.

Hiroko creates many of her works employing traditional katazome techniques. Japanese maple leaves, flowers, arches, and the like are hand-dyed on natural fabrics, such as linen, and sustainable papers that are tree free, such as mulberry, or kozo.  Hiroko also uses natural pigments from turmeric and indigo. Here is an example seen in her katazome placemats:

Simple, yet elegant and sophisticated.

There is also a whimsical element to her work, such as this pineapple scarf.  Fun!

Thank you, Hiroko, for producing such timeless and original work. I love it all!
