- Kai Jin from Shi Dong is a traditional pleat skirt expert. She wraps 5m long of indigo dyed cotton fabric around a large wooden water container, then folds every single pleat by hand using a large pin. A light starch coating made of bletilla striata is applied to fix the pleats. A skirt worth of hand pleated fabric takes up to 3 weeks to complete! We are impressed with her skills and are producing a limited order from her.
Empower her family of 6 and keep this heritage craft alive through this lovely piece.
