Beautiful textiles.

Have you seen Japanese Sakiori weaving yet?


image from here

There was a time in Japan where the majority of clothing was made from bast fibres (like linen) and silk. Cotton was a luxury item, especially because it can be so much warmer than linen. When the cotton garmet was worn out, it would be shredded very fine and woven into new cloth, or if there were sections of cloth large enough, it would be used to make patchwork garments.

They had special stitching to reinforce the fabric.

Another sakiori resource

I think this would be a permaculture friendly fashion.

Those are beautiful examples R. I love the patchwork kimono especially and I love indigo.............Makes me want to find a pair of ripped blue jeans and start patching....patchwork with hand stitching couldn't be more wonderful
I have a habit of buying some things at thrift stores just because of the way they were mended.....

The Daily Japanese Textile page that I mention in the first post has stopped as of 2016....hoping they start up again soon, at least all of the pictures are still there to browse.

Now you're talking my kind of language Judith! I absolutely love old Japanese textiles and collect them myself. I have visited the country three times to see how the traditional weaving, shibori and dyeing techniques are carried out in the textiles quarter of Kyoto especially. I have saved several beautiful images of such textiles on my Pinterest wall here if you're interested: https://uk.pinterest.com/raramatthews/textile/?etslf=3979&eq=textile

I also noticed that The Daily Japanese Textile stopped in December 2016. I think they are having issues with their website and hopefully be back soon! Are you aware of Bryan's work here?: http://japanesetextileworkshops.blogspot.co.uk/

Rara, thank you so much for both of the links...beautiful work!

I miss the 'daily Japanese textile' as it was just right for my attention span.  I thought it was starting up again early this year but only saw a few before it stopped again.

I am going to watch the blog you linked to...'smoked dye patterns on deer leather' !!  how interesting. 

So glad to have you posting here at permies
