From Japanese shiborizome

Examples

  • I carried the traditional handbag called a kago, which has a basketweave base topped by a drawstring pouch of colorful tie dyed silk, shibori, which is made by tying silk into a myriad of minute knots with thread before it is dyed.

  • One of the pieces in this set incorporates some shibori techniques that have given me some very good texture effects.

  • And the last set - the far left is the pseudo-marble shibori, with the balled up and scrunched one next.

    To dye for

  • On the right, two shibori pieces - these are the pole ones.

    To dye for

  • These two (above) are more shibori - all folded - the far left is clamped, which left some small resist marks, but I think I need to work on that technique a little.

    To dye for

  • And I got a bunch of other stuff, too - a package of fat eights of shibori-ed fabric which was a swap from my dyeing group - that's what's pictured above.

    Fastenings, Day 2

  • The first order of business was 8 fat eights of complex cloth for a swap - I decided to see if there was something in my stash that was suitable to use as a starting point - and found this lovely shibori piece.

  • The back is a piece of shibori-ed fabric, on which I will write something (not sure what yet); thought it best to keep it simple.
