Rain + Wear : Using Rain in Textile Design

Having lived in Seattle, Portland, Osaka, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Phnom Penh, and Yangon, we have come to appreciate and love rain (as well as rainy seasons, monsoons, and typhoons).

Dutch artist Aliki van der Kruijis felt the beauty behind rain should be celebrated and documented, so she developed a method of "pluviography"—drawing with rain—to imprint raindrops onto wearable textiles. Her hope is that people will begin to see rain's beauty via her artwork.
