Katazome is a Japanese method of dyeing fabrics using a resist paste applied through a stencil. The stencils used are called Katagami. The stencils were developed and used primarily for printing on fabrics for kimono. The technique of using the katagami stencils originated in Japan during the later part of the eighth century. This workshop reinterpreted the Japanese art of Katazome with global geometric patterns designed by Agnes. The bold patterns are applied to home linens to create modern heirlooms.
