Natural Indigo and Patchwork
Other items that stand out are the patch worked and padded kimono jackets, which show our love for Japan. The fabrics used for these items have loads of character. Some fabrics are hand dyed in natural indigo, with one, two and three dips. Also the Kings of Indigo have created several other prints this season, as a screen print based on a polka dot handkerchief from the 1800´s and Japanese indigo floral prints done with ecru and navy. Last but not least an indigo check fabric is produced inspired by a natural indigo fabric from the early 1900´s the Kings bought in Japan, a handloom masterpiece made with super irregular slubs. All these fabrics together create the beautiful pieces, each fabric telling their own story.
Next to this traditional patchwork technique the Kings also bring a new innovative way of print developing. The art of digital printing allows the Kings to create beautiful traditional artworks in a innovative way.
