Shibori:
 

Shibori, a Japanese word, comes from the verb shiboru, “to wring, squeeze, press.”  It is the term used by contemporary artists from around the world for the Japanese techniques of folding, crumpling, stitching, plaiting, or wrapping and twisting cloth before it is dyed.  These shaped resist techniques date back to A.D. 749. 

 

Techniques include:

Folding – itajime – fold and clamping

Pole-wrapped – arashi “storm”

Stitching – mokume shibori – wood grain; karamatsu

Binding – hon hitta kanoko – dots with squares
