Shibori is one of the richest textile movements in the world and is currently undergoing a revival. Re-discover this fantastic textile technique and learn all the latest methods and materials artists are using today. Commonly associated with Japan, it is in fact a technique long used in Africa, India and South America. Shibori is the Japanese term for the dye-resist technique of binding, clamping or gathering the cloth up tightly so that the dye cannot reach certain parts. Those skilled in the techniques can create very delicate and intricate patterns and effects. The traditional basic materials are simply threads, fabrics and the dyes themselves so it is easy for anyone to get started. Modern Shibori is packed with inspirational illustrations and clear instructions. The perfect book for anyone interested in discovering this beautiful textile art.
