Mira Blackman uses all natural, handmade and heritage textiles discovered on her travels around the globe, from West Africa to Japan, for her one of a kind items. Each piece is inspired by the textiles themselves and are often made without the use of patterns. Many textiles are handwoven in small strips that are then hand sewn together before being dyed- the whole process takes weeks, and maybe even longer when you consider that the weavers often grow their own cotton and indigo! 

Vintage fabrics are enriched by imperfections such as distress patterns, small holes or stains.
