Behind The Scenes Storm is a yarn dyed kasuri from Moda. In the Japanese world of Taupes, yarn dyed fabrics come from all over the world in addition to Japan, like China and India. A kasuri, in Japan or Ikat in India, the threads are dyed in segments before weaving to create patterns and images after weaving. This resist-dying technique creates blurred or brushed images in the fabric. Historically in Japan the images were detailed and complicated to produce, contemporary kasuri are simpler but just as prized.
