I know shibori isn’t a new trend by any means. But lately I’ve been seeing shibori techniques used on virtually any type of cloth: bedding, clothing, tea towels and other linens. I’m not one to get swept away in trends, but I have to say I’m liking this one. A lot.

The shibori technique of dyeing with indigo developed during the 8th century in Japan. It comes from the Japanese verb root “shiboru” which means, “to wring, squeeze, press.” I love that there is an infinite amount of ways to fold the cloth, resulting in an infinite amount of patterns… like how no one snowflake is ever the same.
