Thanks to my new studio I was able to open the indigo season quite early this year. Nothing's nicer than building your vat while the cold rain is playing its steady rhythm on the roof and you are inside, relatively warm and very dry. And there is even warm water to wash your fabrics and not freezing your hands off. What a luxury.
I started my vat with three mokume shibori scarves I stitched over the last two weeks. Mokume takes a lot of time but I love the result so much.
The scarves are made of vintage cotton, softened by time and lots of washing and have a size of 120 x 35 cm (47 x 13 in). As soon as I can muster the courage to ask the price they deserve, I will put them up for sale. Though I am playing with the thought of adding a few simple blue stripes and sew them into a quilt top, keeping them.
And these are the other two scarves. Same cotton, same size.
