Dark Blue Bee


This one is from Echino, a textile designer based in Japan. It was designed by Etsuka Furuya, who’s a huge fan of bees - understandably! The cotton is organic, though the dyes used are chemical. The fabric isn’t 100% sustainable therefore, though supporting an artist’s studio in Japan that actively seeks out young students and innovative designs is important.

The fabric itself has a soft drape since it’s a double gauze, and it’d make a great outfit for work due to its subtle designs and dark colour palette.
