Shibori is an ancient Japanese art form best described as “resist” dyeing. The Japanese developed the techniques for silk fabrics that were often used in kimonos.

Originally, natural dyes, including indigo, were used to colour the fabric. Stitching, folding and clamping were some of the techniques used to create patterns. In Japan, these techniques have been practiced and improved upon for over 1300 years.
