Isn’t this fabric lovely? I don’t know anything about shibori except that it’s a type of tie dye from Japan. Given what tie dye usually looks like in the U.S., it doesn’t seem appropriate to call these intricate and elegant designs by the same name! In any case, I thought the following two posts would be fun to share. They come from an American blogger who went to a shibori festival in Nagoya, Japan. Check out her photos of the gorgeous garments as well as the shibori masters at work. Amazing!
