Aliki's Rain Work/Indigo Work

Aliki is a designer from the Netherlands. She uses rain to make patterns on cloth. She would run outside the house when a shower started to take a reading of the rain. Just two quick reads.

This one has pictures of katazome process at Noguchi's studio:

Aliki's rain work:


  1. The rain textiles evoke emotions of the season in which they were made. Sometimes calm, sometimes tumultuous. Good to see how both fallen rain and fallen leaves can leave their imprint on cloth. The gingko tree's offering of leaves were put to such good use in making a katazome yukata. Wherever I travel, I hope to make stencils of the leaves and tun them into textiles in shades of blue that are evocative of the place where they grew.
