I created this pouch where you can bury your objects from an old Japanese kimono - I work with Japanese kimonos that have been worn to which I give another life. I like the idea that the story continues. Traveling fabrics, unique objects with multiple uses It's up to you to write the rest of the story! Bon voyage (◡‿◡✿) www.ikemato.com

This kimono is made using the Shibori technique, a Japanese technique of resist dyeing by ligature on fabric. It is also known as "tie and dye" or "knotweed". This object retains its volume: the empty case stands "upright", forms and deforms, moving according to the movements you give it - wind of freedom between East and West

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 that I put aside. I use the free pieces of these memories and rich of so many others to create my pieces.

Sending by registered mail to France and internationally. If you want a shipment via MONDIAL RELAY it is possible: the Empreintes platform does not yet automatically offer this option - but you just need to specify this request when placing your order (price unchanged) via a message or call. 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
