This garment is part of a collaboration with textile artist Graham Keegan.  A skilled natural dyer, Graham works out of his studio space in Echo Park.  Each dye batch is small, and done by hand for quality.  He uses a variety of natural dyes, and this collaboration shows off his work with Madder root.  The mottled appearance of these pieces is a characteristic of hand dyed items.  All of the pieces in this collaboration are limited edition, or one of a kind.  Jill and Graham select fabric together for quality, luster, and hand.  Pattern and layout of the clothes has been carefully engineered.  Certain of the pieces have been dyed with a folding process that requires precision, and can take over an hour for a 2 yard piece of fabric.  Jill designs the garments, and cuts each one individually.  The result is a one of kind dress or top.
