Fashion designer Kathryn Marie creates fabrics to compliment the harmony of shapes and stitches found within each of her designs. Through the use of traditional Japanese Shibori techniques, batik techniques, as well as her own custom fabric design, Kathryn Marie creates dynamic compositions within the fabric itself. She is adamant about her products being one of a kind, taking care that each piece of hand-dyed fabric, stitched into her products, is distinctively different. Her hope is these heirloom textiles will be enjoyed and treasured throughout generations.
Kathryn Marie draws her inspiration from the natural beauty of her Northern Michigan cabin in the woods. The greens and browns which surround her home balance the clear blues of Lake Michigan which she enjoys daily. The colors surrounding her studio vary depending on time of day and weather providing a beautiful ever changing palette. These bountiful colors of nature transcend into hand-dyed fabrics which inspire her designs.
Each design tells a unique story. For Kathryn Marie, life experiences and travel stimulate innovative ideas found within her current and future work.
Kathryn Marie’s work is handmade, made in the USA, and Made in Michigan.
