Jean Carbon


Jean Carbon, textile artisan, fashion designer, traveller and teacher.

My passion is fabric; it’s history and origins, and the many ways it can be patterned, coloured and decorated to create garments or works of art. I use the ancient resist dying techniques of Shibori and clamped blocks to pattern sumptuous silk fabrics.

While this form of dyeing is very labour intensive it allows me to be specific in where I pattern the fabric and how I then place the design into a garment or piece of art. Always happy to have visitors to my studio to either discuss the process, do a workshop ,try on a garment or purchase a gift.

Text or phone first to check that I’m home.
