Cosmic Wonder - Organic Cotton Wrapped Dress, Wild Rose Soil£720.00
Made in Japan
Lead by a Japanese artist Yukinori Maeda, Cosmic Wonder is a conceptual work of clothing, artwork, publishing and performance. With a deep understanding in natural materials and traditional techniques, garments are designed with a dedication to sustainability, inspired from the past and looking the future. The studio moved to a remote village in the mountainous region of Kyoto since 2016, which is designated as a National Preservation District of Historic Buildings.
This dress is mud-dyed, a traditional craft, in Amami Oshima. Dyeing is done with dye made from boiled Sharinbai tree, which grows wild in Amami, and the iron-rich mud from the ancient stratum of 1.5 million years ago on Amami Oshima. After dyeing with sharinbai tree, the process is repeated: dyeing with mud in the mud field, rinsing in the river to remove the mud. Mud dyeing is a precious dyeing process that requires the blessings of nature, techniques cultivated over many years.
