Shibori-dyed Cotton Sateen
Packing jewelry on vacation might be dangerous. If you don't have an excellent storage solution, you risk opening your luggage on a massacre of knotted chains and jumbled rings. Princesse Décadente often travels and is always ready-to-go, so we have created a fantastic option for storing a select few pieces in style. It's ideal for short weekend escapades, just like for never-ending trips: four pockets with buttons, gorgeous cotton sateen, Shibori-printed, and hand-stitched in Italy. It’s a unique piece that can be personalized.
Shibori (しぼり / 絞り) is a traditional Japanese method of manually dyeing textiles with patterns. The earliest known example of cloth dyed using this technique dates from the 8th century when it was among the goods donated by the Emperor Shōmu to the Tōdai-ji in Nara. There are an infinite number of ways one can bind, stitch, fold, twist, or compress cloth for Shibori, and each one results in vastly different patterns. Each method is used to achieve a certain result, but each method is also utilized in harmony with the type of cloth used. Therefore, the technique used in Shibori depends not only on the desired pattern but also on the characteristics of the cloth that is being dyed.
