I recently borrowed a book from the library on the art of Shibori; the earliest known example of Japanese cloth dying. It has such an incredible history and I loved the idea that no two Shibori pieces will ever be the same. Each piece is affected by every little thing all the way down to the temperment of the artist. Reading about it got me so excited to do it myself.
I bought some cotton flour sack towels, a plastic tarp, a couple buckets and a basic indigo dye kit and over the weekend I made Shibori kitchen towels to give as Christmas gifts. It was so much fun.
