    Shibori is a Japanese resist technique which is used when dyeing fabrics. There are many different techniques used when creating the shibori resist, such as; binding, twisting, clamping, folding, stitching, plaiting, knotting and compressing. Each technique has a different name and is used in conjunction with the pattern you want to achieve, and sometimes the fabric used. The cloth records the shape, pattern and pressure used to create the resist before dyeing.

    Indigo dye is often used to dye shibori resists. Indigo is an organic, blue compound which is kept in an indigo vat to preserve it for dyeing. Traditionally, indigo came from plants but nowadays, as blue dyes have become less rare, are more often synthetic. Indigo dye is different from other dyes as it doesn't contain any mordant; this process reduces the indigo which means it rapidly changes from blue to yellow where it then dissolves in an alkaline. When taken out of the vat, the air slowly changes the yellow colour, too a dark, rich blue-indigo colour.

    Shibori and indigo are used together to create a striking, rich pattern. As the shibori resist remains a bright white, and the rest of the fabric turns indigo, the patten appears extremely striking and a dark indigo colour. The more dips a piece of fabric had in the indigo vat, or the longer it is left in, the stronger the colour will become. The picture above shows an example of an indigo dyed shibori which has been dyes many times to create such a strong colour.

    Shibori is a Japanese word for the variety of ways of designed fabrics/textiles by shaping and securing material before dying it. Shibori comes from the Japanese word ‘Shiboru’ which means – to wring, squeeze, press. The word emphasizes the actions performed on the cloth, the process of manipulating fabric.
