Shibori - Dye Resist Part 2

This is Part 2 of a two part series on Shibori dyeing.  


Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that creates dye-resists in the cloth by folding, pleating, and/or bunching the fabric. These folds are then bound with thread, clamps or rubber bands, preventing the dye from penetrating.   


In woven shibori, instead of rubber bands or clamps to create the resist, various stitching methods are applied.
