To imbue means to inspire or permeate with a feeling or quality; permeate, infuse, tincture, soak. This is how designer Kim Eichler-Messmer likes to think about hand dyed fabrics. "They are infused not only with color and pattern, but with the intentions of the maker as well. These modern batiks were printed and dyed by hand in Indonesia and the designs came from my own hand dyed fabrics. The colors are rich and saturated and the slight imperfections in the print add character, movement, and a glimpse into the process of their creation."
