Haath Heart by Ryoko Haraguchi

Haraguchi’s tryst with Indian textiles began during her travels in India 24 years ago. Her fascination with the diverse textile traditions compelled her to revisit the ancient dyeing techniques of Japan that were on the verge of extinction.

The garments are experimental, and incorporate traditional Indian weaving, stitch work and dyeing techniques together with ancient Japanese methods, such as Itajime (board dyeing) and persimmon dyeing Kakishibu. Only a few artisans remain in Japant today who practice this art form. “It takes a long time to create each piece as everything is done by hand. I use things like Kota saris and Indian silks as my material.”

“India is now drastically changing, so it is one of my concerns that the natural ways of tradition may become lost and may never be regained. These are treasures for all of us in today’s techno-digital world.” says Ryoko Haraguchi.

Haath Heart offers textile enthusiasts an opportunity to engage with innovative design that can only emerge from a continuing creative collaboration with craftspeople in ancient textile cultures like India and Japan.

Radhi Parekh, the Director of ARTISANS’ says“, “Ryoko Haraguchi’s work signifies a unique trans-cultural collaboration. I hope the innovations that emerge will help to sustain the traditional textiles techniques of India and Japan – at an important time for both countries.”
