Shibori is a manual resist dyeing technique used on textiles to create patterns that spread unevenly across the fabric. The resulting patterns compel one to see and appreciate the beauty of imperfections. Each piece is unique and no two pieces are entirely alike. Shibori is prized for it's uniqueness and arresting beauty.
Originally from Japan , this collection primarily uses the “itajime shibori” style, meaning "board-clamping" in Japanese which has been developed by master printers of Jaipur.
Itajime Shibori is primarily used for creating geometric patterns. The size and shape of the blocks used determines the size and shape of the pattern. To Create clamp shibori, the fabric is folded and sandwiched between two flat objects, such as a piece of wood and then clamped tightly together with binder clips. The areas of the fabric that are pressed between the two blocks will resist the dye, creating a pattern. The dye penetrates the area of the fabric that isn’t clamped, creating a contrasting pattern. In addition to the tying, which must be skillfully performed by experienced hands to withstand the dye and provide a 3D effect on the fabric, the untying is also very crucial. What's unique about this technique is how it finally manifests itself in the most beautiful and unpredictable patterns!
