Was very lucky to attend a workshop with Kuno Hiroaki organised by Couleur Garance. His enthusiasm about traditional indigo shibori and the way he envisions it’s transposition into a XXIe century sustainable and modern production is very inspiring. We trained in Te-Kumo shibori, and realised the unbelievable amount of work needed to create the patterns by this tying method onto a large (or long) piece of fabric… Kuno brought with him some very ancient textiles, some of them created with forgotten shibori techniques that made then real treasures! Endless inspiration…

Processing the lavender crop at la Baye des Anges
The lavender field at la Baye des Anges, is the source and inspiration for the lavender pouches production. We planted this field in 2013, and ever since the first crop, we have been enjoying the powerful fragrance all over the house.
