Add a great decorative accent to any room of the house with our handmade Katano shibori indigo pillow. We created the pattern on this shibori indigo pillow at our studio using authentic stitch resist shibori techniques which ensure that this pillow is entirely unique. This pillow was hand-dyed in our indigo vat a minimum of 10 times to create the dynamic combination of deep midnight blues and crisp white tones that look charmingly stylish from any distance.
The fabric on this pillow is a textural linen rayon blend with rustic character that is pleasing to the touch and evokes an elegantly luxurious feeling.
This particular design is a variation on the work of the late shibori master dyer Motohiko Katano. The entire piece was stitch-pleated and the pattern was created by stitching the motifs through multiple layers of fabric. The gentle hints of beige-yellow hues were achieved by under-dyeing the fabric in myrobalan extract before over-dyeing in indigo. For more information on our dyeing process please visit our process page.

Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or excessive rubbing against white fabric. We recommend hand-washing separately in lukewarm water with mild detergent which contains no whitening or bleaching agents. If using a washing machine please select gentle wash function with cold water. Please air-dry in a shaded area. Iron on low temperature.
Although we wash each textile multiple times before shipping to remove excess dye particles there is still a possibility of colour transference occurring (during harsh rubbing or other close/vigorous interactions).
During the first few washes some brown or yellow pigment may appear in the water. This is normal and is a chemical compound characteristic of our indigo dye. Periodically removing this excess pigment will leave colours more vivid than before.
Synthetically dyed textiles are beautiful immediately after dyeing, while textiles dyed with indigo become more beautiful over time, developing their own characteristic shades with each day of use. Natural dyes are living colours and need to be cared for accordingly for best results. Please enjoy the gradual evolution of your naturally dyed textile.
