super lightweight organic cotton scarf
from haat which is another label from issey miyake inc. directed by a textile designer makiko minagawa since 2000.
her work for haat often shows indian influence.
she had been an in-house textile designer (what they call "textile director" strictly) for issey miyake collections since 1971.
she is from kyoto, btw. it seems that she had already worked as a "senshoku-ka (artist or specialist in dyeing) " while she was a student.

54g
190 × 100cm
spinning, weaving, etc all done in japan
they say executing this featheryiness with the handwoven feel by machine was the technological point here.
it will be out mar 5.

^it's made by machine.. maybe the threads are uneven --that's what they mean by it feels handwoven?
i'm such a fan of Minagawa san , there's a kind of earthiness or something feels natural in her textiles..
I think you can see a lot of her work, photos about the fabric specifically, in one of the books on Issey Miyake. maybe "making things"


educo
i agree, sometimes you just can't find the fabric you like at the store..
would love to hear your report when you go !

Bear with me this was translated using babel fish..
Quote:
Travel in the middle of the mythical workshop of Gerard Lognon, craftsman plissor of the largest dressmakers


He is one of the last Masters plisseurs of our country. As soon as a creator outlines a fold, it knows that it will find in the workshop of Gerard Lognon the mould corresponding to his dreams of folded most extravagant and the control of the work most perfect which is. In a word: excellence.



A family of plisseurs…


Gathered on a rack, the moulds known as imagination are juxtaposed in a merry alignment, testimonys of the richness of the inheritance of Gerard Lognon.

Since four generations, Lognons fold… There initially was the back grandmother, Emilie. The history tells that it goffered with the hand at the time of Napoleon III… At the beginning of the twentieth century, it is the Georges grandfather who, vis-a-vis at the request of the dressmakers, creates a true specialized company in the fold.

Little before the beginning second world war, the workshop counts nearly sixty workers!
Sixty ten years later, they are nothing any more but five to work… Mrs Liliane carrying out the ball, distilling around it the requests of Mr Lognon whose glance as sharp-edged as that of a scanner reviews the last folds left the drying oven…



Stage by stage, all art to fold…




Pose against - mould for one folded sun. One distinguishes well the two parts out of paperboard which come to be juxtaposed except for the millimetre.





To carry out this folded flat, four hands expert are too not… They must be light and move constantly over all the width not to leave of mark on fabric. This exercise also requires a perfect coordination.





Once folded, the mould and the against-mould tight between two wood are firmly bound by garcettes. It is this “package” which will have passed to the drying oven to 100° during approximately an hour.





For the passage out of drying oven, it is necessary to await a dozen hours before opening the “package” so that the temperature fell down and that the folds really took.
Here finally come the hour moving by the opening from the mould… and appearance so much awaited of folded. A wing of the mould delicately is raised while a nimble hand seizes fabric…





These perfect traces left in the white snow of fabric… or the succeeded artisanal dream.





Various examples of folded known as imagination, superimposed moulds and fabrics…
aiguille-en-fete

reverse applique
"Reverse applique" is a technique where you have layers of fabric together, sewing your motif designs on top and then cutting them out, down to the layer which you want visible.
