VIDEO INSPIRATION / sri threads' textile wonderland
Cool Hunting posted something recently that made me weak in the knees with textile envy. They profiled Stephen Szczepanek, owner of Sri Threads in Brooklyn, NY. Sri Threads is an incredible boutique featuring a vast array of Japanese and Indian textiles including indigo dyed, katazome, ikat, and of course, boro. Each piece is carefully sourced by Szczepanek to add to the boutique's collection. The video talks about some of the types of pieces he carries as well as his process behind finding these fiber relics. Watch and swoon, not only at the fabric, but also at the amazing (I assume) library of books behind him in the video. Perfect inspiration for a Monday.
