Description

Share

The Japanese rice bag was a drawstring bag made from scraps of cotton fabric that was used to carry offerings of rice to the Japanese temples and shrines. The word Komebukuro means rice (Kome) – bag (bukuro). Also used to carry gifts. 

Botanical printing is a eco contact printing method when leaves are laid out on either fabric or paper and bundled tightly before subjecting to heat. This heat encourages the leaves to give up their natural colours and prints. No paint, no ink no dye just nature’s alchemy.

This magical technique allows me to create inspiring substrates which can then be turned into one off creations that are both practical and aesthetically appealing to the discerning customer.

Coming soon a blog post where I show how I create my unique botanical prints.
