16  Washing Vintage Fabric- really vintage / silks / obi in Discussion and Questions by nico-tiro on: March 08, 2006 12:34:18 PM
ok. this is a bit long coz i am so kind of bummed and just wanted to share in case anybody had any suggestions/ similar experiences with washing vintage fabric:

Yesterday I bought a box of 13+ vintage obi for 40$. the minimalist yuppie couple i bought it from had lived in japan for 5 years and were moving/downsizing their stuff. they were awsome and the obi is truly vintage.

i decide to try and wash two. of course i dont choose an 'uglier' one. i go right on and wash two pretty ones that i want to use..the first one came out ok...i used dish soap...i figured it was milder than detergent... a little color bleed. the second one, a beautiful one that has cranes, landscape, gold, trees, leaves really nice one all shades of dark greens...it was so dirty. and i killed it! i wasnt gentle enough. the fabric seemed to have grime in it, the water was all black/brown, there were little bits of dirt i could see forming on the tub (where i washed em).
it ripped and holes appeared in some places... it felt like the fabric was melting! little bits of gold dust were on my fingers. i didnt use any soap.

then i just stretched it flat hung them...the green one i layed on a drying rack.

tried to reasearch what era/period that kind of obi is and i think i may have washed something close to a 100 years old!. i feel terrible to say the least




here they are the next day

the red one

18  Unconventional Kanzashi pins (7 new cuties added!!!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by nico-tiro on: February 27, 2006 12:53:15 AM
 hi there
im not really sure if these are that unconventional. erm, i used different than the regular materials- tool and embroidered trim!

was inspired for some reason today to make 3- wow. i havent made these in a while.
i even managed to fashin a pin back out of felt and a brass pin- awsome! i really like this better than a regular (i mean REAL) pin back..

question:
what do you think/ like better???

this one i called 'spring fray'



the romantic one




show and tell!
