This garment is part of an artisan collaboration with textile artist Graham Keegan.  A skilled dyer, Graham works with natural dyes in his studio space in Echo Park, Los Angeles.  Each dye batch is small, and done by hand for quality, and consistency.  He uses a variety of natural dyes, and this collaboration shows off his indigo, and bougainvillea work.  All of the pieces in this collaboration are limited edition.  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.
