Shibori Workshop on Tote Bags by Anisha Khiyani

Shibori is one of the oldest Indigo dying techniques in Japan and India. It is a technique for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. The results are endless and can be as simple or as elaborate as you please.

Shibori is a Japanese name for Tie and Dye and is part of the larger family of resist-dyeing techniques that can be found in different forms across many cultures.

Tie-dye is a method of tying or stitching fabric together to prevent the absorption of dye to a particular area, dyeing is the process of applying colour on cloth to produce a design. Although the techniques of tie and dye vary from culture to culture, the concept of dying remains one of the oldest methods of printing design on fabric.

The design obtained from the placement of the pleats, stitches and ties can never be an absolute means of predetermining the final visual result.
