What is “Shibori”?

The word Shibori comes from the Japanese verb “shiboru” which means to squeeze, wring and press.
Shibori is a traditional Japanese resist dyeing technique and produces distinct patterns on a fabric.

The Shibori technique consists of the following steps: binding, stitching, folding, twisting, compressing, dyeing, and then releasing the binding pressure to reveal the pattern.
Each and every detail of Shibori represents a tied knot made by an artisan’s hands and the fabric sensitively refracts the process.

There is endless number of ways to bind, stitch, fold, twist, or compress fabric so that everyone can create and enjoy their own original pattern.
To open up the tied knot and reveal the result is an exciting moment!
