Shibori is a Japanese term for a family of dyeing techniques in which the artist binds, stitches, folds, twists, or compresses fabric to create different patterns in the fabric. The most familiar of these techniques is tie dye, but there are many other types of shibori dyeing. Awesome member and frequent fiber board contributor, Ptarmic wumpus, shows her experiments with arashi shibori, a technique in which fabric is wrapped and bound around a pole. Look at that sumptuous green! Thanks, Ptarmic wumpus, for this informative and beautiful post!
