Shibori Collaboration

Shibori Collaboration

Right from the start, we wanted to collaborate with Australian artists and designers to create a limited edition range of collectable Merino scarves.

Early on we were lucky enough to meet two amazing ladies. Shibori (Stanmore, NSW) is a creative partnership between Pepa Martin and Karen Davis who use traditional methods of Japanese Shibori dying. We have worked closely with this creative duo over the last 3 years to experiment with colour and pattern on our Merino, creating original pieces each dyed individually by hand in Sydney.

Pepa and Karen are artistic leaders in the Sydney hand dying scene with their designs translating into wall papers, rugs, leather upholstery, fashion, candles, soft furnishings and even surfboards. Working predominantly with indigo the pair greet you with blue hands and relaxed, creative space.

The dying method of uses wooden blocks and folding to create ‘resists’ (areas of which resist the dye). The fabric is then dipped in coloured dye and the results vary depending on how long and which parts are saturated. As this is a hand dyed process it means the results are always unique.

Pepa and Karen’s experience with hand dying and natural materials means they could match our colourways and use careful procedures to avoid shrinkage and stretching of the Merino.

A huge thank you to Pepa and Karen for all their creativity, hard work and ongoing support - we couldn't have done it without them!
