There is a good chance that you have heard the term Shibori. It is normal because Shibori designs are unique and incredible. Who would not like to make a wonderful summer dress or a summer scarf in this fashion fabric?

Shibori is a technique of dyeing Japanese fabric dating from the 8th century AD, one of the first known. Today it is still being done, in a variety of colors, generating different patterns, but the traditional color is indigo blue. The differences in the patterns are in the ways of twisting, tying, folding and compressing the fabric. The word shibori is Japanese and means stained with blockage. The idea is to block different areas to prevent dye from penetrating.

The Shibori is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique which is mainly applied to garments and fabric cuts. It means "stained with blockage" and consists of blocking some of the areas of the fabric, to avoid dyeing. It involves bending, twisting or tying and then dyeing it indigo.

The elements used to block the fabric, limit the passage of the dye, leaving areas in blue and others in white.

 One of the most characteristic features of Shibori is that it plays with the unpredictability of its shapes, allying itself with chance to create a wide variety of unique prints.

You can make pillows, dye clothes or upholstery fabrics, individual, tablecloths, napkins, bags and everything that their imagination allows .

This technique makes your clothing unique and unrepeatable.
