The fabric is nylon dyed with bamboo and soga, a tropical plant native to Indonesia. In choosing to combine innovative contemporary synthetics with hand-weaving and natural dyes, Jinzenji has set a new aesthetic standard as a quiltmaker. She lives in Kyoto but since 1989 has had a studio in Bali. Here she takes inspiration from the natural world, experimenting with the local plants, roots and trees to create subtle and rich natural dyes.
