Shibori

Shibori is a method of negative contrats perfected over the centuries by Japanese tradition. There are many methods to keep particular areas of the fabric away from the dye in order for it to retain it’s original colour (here white). In the following pictures, the fabric is folded between wood blocks that are clamped together, the pressure impedes the fabric’s contact with pigment. After the desired colour is obtained, the fabric is unclamped and the pattern appears like magic!
