Woodgrain with background pattern Shibori recipe.

Here are three photos and it is quite easy to figure out how the pattern is created. Wet the cloth before pulling and tying the threads. Pull some tight leave others loose. One centimeter between the lines. Use disappearing aobana pen to draw the lines. You can make a more refined pattern, I've been out of the Shibori loop for a while. Dye and oxydize it 15 times with indigo in good condition.


  1. wow! the operative words in the post are indigo in good condition. not like my vat.

  2. Absolutely beautiful, I will take notes and try this pattern on my next shibori attempt, thank you!
