Australian fashion and textile designer Karina Seljak teamed up with New York’s Morris Kitchen to create a range of handcrafted linens.
March 22nd, 2016
Durable and full of character, the Morris Kitchen and Karina Seljak collaboration uses the ancient Shibori technique. The technique involves folding and binding fabrics in a resist technique. This free form approach guides the dye and requires an intuitive, masterful touch.
For Karina, dying fiber with tumeric is an experience similar to cooking; it loosely follows a recipe, and fills the air with a delicious aroma.
The range is based around a pair of natural colours:
Tumeric is a rhizome, an underground plant with many varying roots and shoots, related to ginger, and makes a brilliant golden yellow dye.
Indigo is naturally plant derived and has been used in cultures from Japan to Vietnam to Guatemala and more. Its rich colour is the result of the oxidization process, and turns green to blue.
The linen itself is produced from the fiber of the flax plant. Known for its softness, natural origins, durability and strength, the linen is distinguished by its texture and weave.
