I bought this old summer kimono in Kyoto. This summer kimono is particularly light, very airy. To the touch it is like "rocky", raw - I guess the yarn is hemp, its material is unique. A system of folds allows it to stand up, in volume even when it is empty. It is woven with white and blue threads, which can be seen distinctly in the check pattern. You can see its flowers, of the same nature but varied, different. It's up to you to write the rest of his story! Bon voyage (◡‿◡✿)

I only work with kimonos that have been worn to which I give another life. Traveling Fabrics - Unique items with multiple uses. This pouch will hold your secrets, treasures, jewelry, tea bags and whatever else takes your fancy. Wash it by hand.

I work with old kimonos, which have been worn. Here begins a second life for them. Having been worn has deformed, stretched, torn, worn them. So I work with a less "stable" material than a new fabric, which, telling a thousand stories, is distended, with holes in places, stained in others. At first I disassemble, unstitch each kimono. I wash the strips of fabric collected then inspect the holes, wear and other memories. I use too many free pieces of these memories and rich of so many others to make my pieces.

Sending by registered mail to France and internationally. I pack the creations with care 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
