Fibres, Colour and the Eye

‘There is a quiet movement back to natural beauty that includes re-embracing our family heritage of farm life and the gifts of creativity associated with that spirit. ‘ KimberleyI learn the most wonderful things from clients, like this website for Kei Kawasaki in Kyoto.All these images are from her site – old Japanese fabrics and garments, a tradition of frugality and appreciation. My eyes feel newly opened.
Thank you Jamie~

    heritage of farm life and gifts – struck a note. We all grew up working on a neighboring farm. A traditional gift from them to friends is a handcarved cradle for newborns. My brother just received one as a brand new grandfather for his new grandson.

    Tricia Rose,
    Thank you for your helpful advice…I really like the Norvald better…it is the artist side in me…and I had not thought of painting on them…amazing idea. I am really just beginning in my artistic journey again after 22 yrs. devoted to mothering, homekeeping, and home teaching. I don’t know where it will lead…I can see the seashore collection I’ve been painting on dishes, fabrics, pillows, etc.

    Hi Tricia…

    It’s hard to launder old linens such as those…and there is actually something about keeping them ‘just the way they are’ that I love…

    but yes, I have looked into natural dying of fabrics for awhile – and am really interested in planting some unique flowers and plants that will be good for this sort of thing –

  5. The Japanese aesthetic really is incomparable, isn’t it. Just lovely in the most understated way. So glad to see these. Jane
