New children’s shibori pieces are here! Each bespoke piece is created using natural, non-toxic materials, sometimes even using natural dyes I have created and used on my silk scarves. The “dots and dashes” dress below features a natural green dye created from the ivy growing in my backyard. The dress itself is made by young women in Tiraque, Bolivia, working in their own micro-enterprise created through grants, private donations, and a partnership with Dharma Trading Co.
This dress, as well as other clothing items, accessories/scarves, and fine art wall hangings can be found under the “Peace. Love. Shibori.™” tab at the Brett Barker Design Studio website. Note: ALL images on this blog & all original shibori pieces are copyrighted.
