Vintage Kimono Scrunchies - I work with kimonos that have been worn, which I bought in Kyoto. I like the idea of prolonging the life of these clothes, without bringing in new materials; Japanese fabrics whose patterns call for travel. West Orient Bridge. I made this scrunchie from an old cotton kimono. It is wide, the elastic allows two turns, ideal for an elegant outfit. It's up to you to continue the story. (* ∵ *) Silk Travel Japan Upcycling

I work with old kimonos, which have been worn. So here begins a second life for them. Having been worn has warped, stretched, torn, worn out. So I work with a material less "stable" than a new fabric, which, telling a thousand stories, is stretched, holes in places, stained in others. First, I take apart and unstitch each kimono. I wash the collected fabric strips then inspect the holes, wear and other memories that I put aside. I use the free pieces of these memories and rich of so many others to realize my pieces.

Sent by mail / parcel followed to France and internationally. I carefully pack the creations so that they arrive nicely, protected.

Tombée amoureuse des motifs de tissu japonais à Kyoto, je reviens de mes voyages avec beaucoup de kimonos anciens. J’aime l’idée que ces kimonos ont été portés et que leur chemin continue. Je mélange des motifs de kimonos avec d’autres – quand il me semble que cette sonorité fonctionne, je me mets à assembler. Coudre. Raconter la suite de l’histoire, entre des tissus, des teintes. Croiser des motifs, des matières - Tisser des liens - Rapprocher le lointain. C’est pour moi la diversité qui crée l’harmonie : le pluriel, le multiple, le différent, le rejeté. Les petits morceaux de rien sont tout. Pour en savoir plus : www.ikemato.com
