shibori 絞り

this is a classic shibori pattern of a vintage jacket worn over kimono.

shibori is a japanese traditional kind of dyeing where parts of the fabric are kept away from the dye by being bound in an intricate combination of knots.

one of the next workshops i'd love to try is the one offered by the kyoto shibori craft center. my friend who tried this workshop said it was fantastic!
