Injiri designs come from an array of inspirations. Sometimes from the weavers they work with and at other times from antique pieces of clothing or textiles that are obsolete. The simplest of clothes worn by peasants, farmers and common man, inspire them the most.
In olden days making clothes was a very slow process that allowed the maker to do each piece at leisure. In the past woven material was a precious commodity and was used frugally. The “hand-made” quality in antique pieces was very evident and Injiri are inspired by this history of craftmanship over and over again.
