Shibori dyeing offers infinite ways to bind, stitch, fold and compress cloth. Each type of binding and dyeing is meant to attain different patterns with very different results.
I started simply using “kanoko” shibori–in the West we commonly call this “tie-dye.” Certain sections of the cloth are bound to attain results. I used natural logwood (purple) dye and bound the cloth with corks and rubber bands.
Then I tried “arashi” shibori, wrapping the cloth on copper pipes with strings. I used logwood for some and quebracho (red) for others. I added some Fustic dye for dots or circles on one design.
Finally–just for fun–I clamped large buttons onto paper and steamed in the same Quebracho red dye pot. And now I have two moons.
