How To Create Beautiful Shibori Textiles Using indigo Dye
I have long been a fan of Indigo dyes ever since our first trip to Rajasthan in 2007, when the deep blue indigo hue caught my eye. I noticed Shibori designs trending in interiors and diy. Ever since, I have always wanted to give Shibori folding and tying techniques a try. Initially, I found the final pictures intimidating because the fabrics always looked visually stunning, which led me to believe that the process was complex. I found out the process can be simplified and even a beginner can have beautiful results. The beauty and simplicity of the outcomes are both modern and timeless.
The overall project took me 2 hours from start to finish, although I planned this project for about 1 week in advance. Much of the work was planning and ordering the materials at the beginning of the week. Once I had them all together, I was ready to begin.

Then, there was the woven necklace that I made last summer and the wave of weaving projects that I rode leading up to it. Below is a simple weaving that I made using my Harrisville lap loom, style B.
