Suzusan

Shibori is a traditional Japanese cloth-dyeing craft that dates back to at least the 8th century. Artisans fold, compress, twist and bind the cloth to produce one-of-a-kind, breathtaking patterns and effects. The technique is nearly the same today as it was centuries ago. Hiroyuki Murase of Arimatsu, Japan, designs for Suzusan today. His company has been family-owned for a century and specializes in shibori fabric; in this incarnation, sweaters, pullovers, cardigans and triangle wraps. The colors are rich and sumptuous; the unique designs range from timelessly elegant to superbly modern. Which pieces first caught your eye? The Suzusan triangle wrap features batwing sleeves, ribbed cuffs and a felted finish. The long cardigan comes in multiple color options; gray with dark blue details, or black with dark navy. It is buttonless and offers slash pockets, as does the shorter cardigans. The pullover has various sizing options; whichever you choose, enjoy the comfort of its seamless design and ribbed cuffs, hem and neck.
