Description/

Guangdong mud silk, a two-color fabric distinguished by its black upper surface and brown underside. By nature of the process and materials involved, mud silk is antibacterial and anti-viral. Originated in the Guangdong Province of China and dating back to the Ming Dynasty in the fifth century, the craft has been kept alive within the region where subtropic river deltas carry a special iron-rich mud that binds to the silk.

The entirely organic technique embraces beautiful deep brown and black hues that can only be achieved through a laborious, season-specific process that has not changed after almost 2,500 years. Mud silk is equivalent to wearing liquid or being embraced by the wind.

Noir is a one-size unisex clothing label made to layer and to last. This piece is made from a collection of vintage mud silk pieces assembled using the patchwork technique. It is one of a kind and reversible.
