The word Shibori comes from the Japanese verb root “shiboru,” meaning “to wring, squeeze, press.”
The pattern is made by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, compressing, dyeing, and then releasing the binding pressure to reveal the pattern. Commonly mistaken for tie-dye in the West, the original Shibori techniques were ancestral, handed down exclusively within Japanese artisan families. Here, Shibori techniques are displayed in a deep lavender pattern on the front.
