This kind of shibori was used traditionally for diapers. Old cotton kimono would be taken apart , folded and dyed in indigo. This is the shape it was folded into and held with stitches before dying.


  1. Just to reiterate how much I have enjoyed reading your blog!

  2. Your work is wonderful. I am a weaver of Saganishiki and make an annual trip to Japan for lessons. Used to live in Kanagawa-ken so can really appreciate how beautiful it is to live there. Do you offer lessons to those coming from countries other than Japan? Linda
