My present works are Natural dyes and Japanese shibori resist technique on fabric. I also integrate some Eco printing and stencil printing.

All items are hand dyed by myself, in my small studio, in central Ontario, Canada.

These textile pieces include silk scarves, cotton daypacks, cotton tunics and upcycled linen table napkins.
My tunics were made for me in Jaipur, India according to my specifications. They are very versatile and comfortable to wear. My daypacks were sewn in Kerala, India.
Made with care and passion, each individual item is unique.

Additionally, I am dyeing on repurposed napkins and tablecloths.

A large variety of natural dyes, including Madder, Logwood, Cochineal, Alkanet, Indigo and others are part of my exploration. I also make and use dyes from plant material found at home, during the warm months (Goldenrod, Walnut, Sumac, Acorns and various fruit trees).
Some of the Shibori techniques I have used include: Arashi, Kumo nui, Mokume and Itajime.

About MaiTribe

On Etsy since 2015

Individually created contemporary art fashion

After many years of working with the airbrush, on canvas, paper and fabric, I have changed direction to a completely different medium-natural dyes and shibori tying on fabric.

Working on fabric is not an entirely new endeavour for me, as I did spend some time on silkscreening on fabric, years ago.

The seed for tying and dyeing on fabric was planted during a visit to the state of Gujarat, in India. There, I met several textile artists, whom have practiced this craft for many generations.

I participated in a 4 day workshop on Indigo and shibori dyeing. After that, two intensive workshops at Maiwa, (several years apart), with the esteemed Michel Garcia brought it all together.
Now I focus on natural dyeing and shibori techniques and I add some eco printing and stencil printing.

My recent art influences have been inspired by my travels, to countries such as Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Bali and most recently to India.
