its good to be back after a long break from my son's mundan (first time hair cutting ceremony after birth). Its a grand affair at our place with lots and lots of rituals. Will be posting the pictures of the ceremony soon.
I love resist dying and it was just wonderdul to come across this stall in the fair. The clarity of work and the dye is amazing. I know how ruthless dyes are, you make one mistake and the dye will make sure that it is there for the world to see, you just can't alter it. Lovely pieces.... I found the combination of shibori and kantha very intelligent and individual.
I have been working with Shibori for almost a year now. I just love the way it works its way with fabric. Have created quite a few stoles in tusser silk. Full range of stoles can be viewed at my other blog.
Have been working on silk stoles and just didn't have an appropriate method to finish the raw edges on the side. Got to know about hand rolled edge finish.........its just great. It is very elegant and looks very soft and nice. I am really happy that it works and looks nice too.
