Lava Living

Lava Living is a Brisbane based brand founded by artist Kirsten Bailey. All of the products use plant-based natural textiles. Kirsten also uses traditional Shibori and Indigo dyeing techniques to put forward a modern interpretation of this ancient craft. Shibori is a resist dye technique that originated in Japan approximately 4000 years ago. Traditionally Shibori textiles are dyed with Indigo which was once referred to as 'Blue Gold' as it was such a valuable trading commodity in the ancient world.
