The Itajime

Silk Collection

 

Luxe. Graphic. Fluid.

Clamp dye is a study in contrasts. Hard steel clamps give form to the fluid habutai silk. Unyielding wooden blocks translate into soft-edged, almost organic-looking geometric patterns dancing across the cloth. The rustic origins of our itajime fabric, hand crafted in the deserts of Western India, belies the luxury of each piece. The silk flows like water and is a pleasure on the skin.

 

Designed to glamorize the everyday, The Itajime Silk Collection has been made as much for lounging at home in, as for island hopping, city breaks and decadent cocktail parties. 

Our SS20 capsule collection embodies the hues of Spring: a delicate, misty lilac reminiscent of cherry blossom petals on the wind; a saturated rani pink epitomising the intensity of India; and an earthy terracotta with lowlights in olive green.

 

This ancient Japanese art of clamp-dye - itajime - shibori has been taken up by the Brothers Khatri in a remote corner of India and executed to perfection. Every three meter piece is crafted individually by hand - folded, clamped, dyed - on repeat until the desired balance and layering of shape and colour has been achieved. The clothing is then stitched by brothers Parvez & Lal in Delhi.
