Shibori is a term for shaped-resist dyeing, a process by which a flat piece of cloth is shaped by folding, stitching, tying, or wrapping and then secured before dyeing. Woven shibori is a process of weaving and resist developed by shibori artist, Catharine Ellis, and taught in her book, Woven Shibori (Interweave, 2005). Using this blank, designed by Ellis and woven at The Oriole Mill in North Carolina, you don’t even have to weave in order to work with this technique.
