to dye for


Kalen and Astrid from Brooklyn - based brand Upstate make garments utilizing their own take on shibori and dip dyeing. Each item, from scarves, handkerchiefs and vests, is hand dyed and one of a kind. This season upstate is presenting pieces that take on more creative and multi-functional shapes!

*Shibori is a Japanese tradition of dyeing cloth using several different methods of binding, folding, or compressing the fabric. Small changes in the combinations of binding and dyeing create an endless array of patterns and textures.

Love,
Andrea
