GABRIEL RUSSO CLOTHING

JAPANESE BORO DIPPED IN INDIGO DYE VAT:

THE JACKET  

It took 7 dippings to get it to the nice deep indigo blue I was after (click on image for a closer view).  Indigo doesn’t dye into the fabric like most dyes, it attaches itself to the fiber. When I submerged the jacket, I had the breast pocket sewn on. I removed the pocket after the dyeing process and that gave me the ghost pocket silhouette.

The boro (Japanese for rags) are  vintage textiles that have been hand stitched and reused for generations.

THE VEST

The fabric is dyed to a blue black with a dusty indigo blue pocket  (click on image for a closer view).
