100% PL Crêpe / Handmade Vertical Pleating

Pattern placement, pleating and measurements may vary as most of the pieces are rolled around cones by hand and bound with thread before going into the oven to change its shape permanently. Through this process, ghost pictures can appear on the print. Those irregularities are no mistakes but a sign of a valuable handmade process, and a sign for a Julia Heuer piece. Most of the pleats have been made by independently trained women of various ages and backgrounds that have each been trained in the process of the Arashi Shibori. This makes each piece unique and worthy.
Julia Heuer does extraordinary artisanal prints and handmade plissé, using a Japanese tie-dying technique called Arashi Shibori. For many of the prints, Julia and her team start by painting, collaging, spraying, and using many other analog techniques. Then the artwork is digitized and worked on until a printed textile pattern is created and turned into unique and valuable garments. Her eccentric work creates a look that cannot be replicated.
