I have been poking around the World Shibori Network site and discovering all sorts of interesting things about shibori. I have heard of shibori referred to as stitch dye, fold dye, pole wrap dye and of course tie dye but these bound resist techniques are all techniques taken to the highest level in Shibori. The site houses a techniques section which covers the various types of folds, ties and stitches available to a shibori artist.
Many different types of shibori exist around the world and it really is worth exploring a little more online about this beautiful textile practice and the associated techniques.
I think readers may enjoy this video. If you do there are 4 others about shibori and shibori techniques to be found here. (Look in the left side bar for links)
