The Lobelia Kimono is a full length kimono made from a thin silk charmeuse. She chose this fabric because of its sheen and super silky hand. More delicate than her other pieces, this fabric is buttery.
Every textile is hand picked by Victoria from the wilds of surplus and dead stock fabric houses in Los Angeles. Then alchemized over several days in a time and labor intensive process, and hand dyed with logwood, alkanet, and hibiscus
Those who love blues and purples this piece has a rich aliveness that only hand made things have.
