Andromeda Needle Shibori Maxi Kaftan Hand made
Our Andromeda Shibori kaftan is the essence of chic! These intricate and extravagant designs produced by the Shibori dyeing method will absolutely "WOW" all those who see it and especially those who wear it!
The Shibori method of tie dye is world renowned for its beauty and its Japanese origins, but few people know the that this technique has found a home with a unique set of artisans in India who have developed a unique twist: the “needle Shibori” method. Pieces from our Needle Shibori collection integrate the Japanese roots of this technique with the South Asian influences that inspire our work at Pax Philomena.
When you purchase and enjoy our Shibori kaftans, you can don a gorgeous dress while knowing you are directly supporting the livelihoods of artisans who have given their hearts and souls to their creations.
Our mission at Pax is not only to bring beautiful clothing and happiness to our customers, but also to directly support the artisans who craft these items by hand in a time where so many true artists are being threatened by “fast fashion” and digital printing methods.
With that in mind, we want to tell you a bit more about the specifics of our Shibori kaftans below.
The Needle Shibori method is detail-intensive and requires immense experience and skill. The artisans who create these dresses intentionally weave a needle in and out of the cloth hundreds of times in intricate patterns in order to create the unique texture of our designs. Many of our artisans have been trained in these methods since childhood and their families have been practicing these ancient techniques for many generations.
