TEXTILE PORN : SHIBORI

Shibori is the Japanese art of folding cloth and dying it, usually with indigo - think of it as the most elegant of tie-dyes. Wood blocks, stones, and ties are used to achieve a variety of tie-dye looks, all amazing and beautiful. Beyond scarves and clothing, I am loving this process when used on textiles for the home. It is soothing, bohemian, artistic, and I love the layered effects that can be made using one pigment. Enjoy!
