“Mardley-zome” is a dyeing technique in which varied patterns are created through stirring colored pastes. The lines flow naturally, delicately mixing into a fusion of colors that has a unique appeal not found in other dye methods.
Beyond the use for Kimono’s and small accessories, the technique seeks possibilities in a wide range of fields, such as western garments and home decor.
