Wabi Sabi Fashion

Thai designer Saran Yen is experimenting with natural dyed cotton for his Wabi Sabi garment project. He's taken his inspiration from Leonard Koren's book Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers

At his website, he writes about these stunning garments, intended for the Japanese market: the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity, simplicity, modesty, intimacy, and the suggestion of natural processes. As a result, the fabric is dyed with natural components such as yeast, coffee etc. 

Hand stitched details, holes and wrinkles is used to create a new perception of beauty - his interpretation of imperfection in fashion design.  I love it. Do you?
