Arimatsu Workers

Bachelor 1 project - HEAD Geneva

This two-garment piece made out of dyed fine cotton is produced without any waste of material. The whole fabric of 400 x 150 cm has been used.

zero waste

The traditional japanese dyeing technique ‘shibori’ served as a base to the colorisation of the fabric.

For this piece I was inspired by the uniform of the factory workers in Arimatsu in Japan, where still lies the epicentrum of the old shibori culture.
