Explore this traditional Japanese dyeing technique

Blue and white is a much-loved colour combination amongst artisans around the world, and blue and white shibori dyeing is very much on-trend at present.


The Japanese art of pleating then tying fabric and dyeing it, can create amazing patterns which are revealed when the fabric is untied. The process can be a simple tie and dye, or quite complex depending on the tying techniques used.
