Fruit of Winter

Freshly plucked from the imaginary tree, this is the fruit of winter. Even the photos turned out with that wintry blue tinge.

Darkest brown from walnut hulls and greenish turquoise from my home-grown Japanese indigo fresh leaf dye. Similar to its autumnal conterpart, this fruit is also heavy with juicy, dark red garnets and is formed from pleated layers of organza. At places the turquoise shows through the brown and gives the material the look of iridescent shot silk.

In the shop on Tuesday.

This is the coldest morning in a while... frost on the grass.
