Mankai (full bloom) comes in taupe or yellow in a breezy double gauze, by Japanese indie designer, admi.

admi designer, Chiharu Hori, grew up in the countryside of Tokyo - it sounds like an oxymoron but there is much more to Tokyo than it’s bright lights! She spent her childhood surrounded by nature, the mountains and rivers were up her daily backdrop, and you can see that reflected in her designs.

Chiharu was inspired to start admi when she connected with the woodblock print artisans she met on her travels in India. It was the people who inspired her, their mastery of their craft and the beautiful textiles that resulted. Woodblock printing is a traditional Indian craft that is both labour and time intensive. The number of printing houses that specialise in this technique continue to decrease and admi is committed to sharing the beauty of these fabrics with as many people as possible.

This fabric is designed by Chiharu in Tokyo and then handprinted by artisans in India, using a hand carved woodblock for each colour and layer in the design - resulting in a beautiful gentle texture. Every piece of fabric is one of a kind.

All admi fabrics are handprinted on high quality Indian cotton - it’s easy to wear and easy to wash, the more you do, the softer it becomes.
