Katazome Card - Yukiko Blackwell - Naturally Dyed - Dragonfly

$9.95

This art card has been created using a centuries-old Japanese stencil-dyeing technique known as 'Katazome' which has traditionally been used to create the intricate patterns found on kimonos.  Each design is an original art piece, inspired by the flora and fauna of both Yuki's native Japan, and her current home on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Canada. 

Each card is created using all-natural materials.  The fragrant smoked mulberry paper in which the stencils are carved, the rice-bran paste applied as a colour resist, and the natural dyes applied onto the handwoven linen are all a veritable feasts for the senses.
