My Shibori Experiment | shibori

Any time I’m asked for my favourite colour I feel a little sheepish saying the usual blue but that’s the truth. Indigo, prussian, cobalt, sky, periwinkle… I love em all.

I was thrilled when I learned that The Shop in Toronto that gave workshops in the Japanese dying method of shibori. Shibori is a method in which fabric is folded, scrunched, tied or sewn and then dunked in an indigo dye bath.

I wish I had some photos of the method, perhaps next time I’ll be more on-the-ball and take some. Here is my end result which I really like. I’ve just decided how I’m going to use the fabric so I’ll have a post about that soon.
