SHIBORI Inspiration

Hello all,

Thank you for stopping by.

My mind is again with Japan and its culture and its way to make art since last week I discovered a new company called Ôtsuki Sama. I love all the things that they do and as they said in their facebook page:

Creative Crafts and use of natural materials for limited editions of fabrics patterns painted in watercolor shades of indigo fabrics and other natural essences, 
decorative accessories and fashion, hand-made."

So inspired in their Indigo fabrics my mind swift again into the Art of Shibori.

Shibori (絞り染め Shiborizome?) is a Japanese term for several methods of dyeing cloth with a pattern by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, compressing it, or capping. Some of these methods are known in the West as tie-dye.

Inspired by this, yesterday I created a New Inspiration Board: SHIBORI.

You can follow my Inspiration Boards in Facebook and Pinterest.

Enjoy them!
