INTRODUCTION TO INDIGO SHIBORI DYEING

Shibori is not a simple tie-dye but in fact a centuries-old Japanese technique of manipulating fabric by folding, twisting, binding, twisting, clamping, stitching and compressioning cloth fabric prior to dyeing.
Indigo dyeing was most popular in the early Edo period in Japan when lower class people where forbidden from wearing silk and it is found in mummy tombs in Ancient Egypt. It is an intriguing
natural dye form that reacts with oxygen and sunlight.
