shibori, the japanese tradition of resist dyeing, incorporates tying, sewing, folding and fastening cloth to achieve a variety of colours and textural effects. it is an ancient technique used in great variations through the centuries. the various processes facilitate a repetition of shape and colour, giving rise to beguiling rhythms and a particular dappled aesthetic.
