Nellie Rose Davis is a native West Virginian and daughter of textile artists specializing in shibori, a Japanese method of resist dye. She was a Fullbright Fellow from 2011 to 2012 during which she studied Japanese textiles and design at Osaka University of Arts in Osaka, Japan. She was inspired during her time in Japan, specifically during her trip to the town of Arimatsu, where shibori techniques have been practiced for over 400 years.
Her research of indigo and other natural dyeing, wax-resist dyeing, stencil-resist dyeing and printing, rice paste-resist dyeing, thread-resist dyeing, silk screen printing, Computer-Aided-Design, kimono construction, weaving, and hand-spinning led her to develop the Nellie Rose Collection of silk clothing and accessories which boasts the Japanese aesthetic and culture including love of subtle color, intriguing texture, and organic movement.
