silk bojagi – 27″ x 32″

 hand stitched

 natural dyes including;  indigo, lac, cochineal, lichen, madder and logwood on the border

shibori samples

the weight of the French seams gives it a delightful “hand” and drape

 

fabric triangles in one corner

it brightens up the January gloom.

    Almost missed this one. How gorgeous the silk in natural dyed give in the piece. I like the little pretty points at the corner. I’m working on DGD’s bojagi too. Hope to get it done soon. Might add something extra like yours – thanks Jean.

      a traditional “little extra” is the bat knot – bats signifying good luck – only one in a corner. I must admit I didn’t think it was good luck when I got one in my very long hair one evening in Singapore many years ago.

    This is breathtakingly beautiful, so delicate to look at, like stained glass as neki desu commented. I adore all the detail too, it’s a wonderful creative treasure. I would love to see it in real life, would you consider bringing it to Japan with you in April? Have a great weekend, Lis x

      thanks, Lis. I’m going to travel light – or as much as possible! but this is light and it is big enough to wear as a scarf so I’ll try to remember to take it. looking forward to meeting you.

        Am aiming to travel light too – I think we might end up bringing one or two things home from Japan! Looking forward to meeting you too, have a good weekend.
