10 Shibori Designs for the Home

by Grace Bonney

I’ve been on an indigo kick for a while now, so I thought I’d check out one of the techniques that really makes that color shine: Shibori. Shibori is a Japanese dying technique that uses a series of binding, stitching, folding or twisting moves to create a pattern (similar to tie dye). I’ve loved seeing contemporary designers like Rebecca Atwood use this technique with such sophisticated results. Combining that technique with a rich indigo color always makes me weak in the knees, so here are 10 pieces that are currently on my wishlist. Some are proper shibori technique and others are just shibori-inspired. If you’re looking to learn simple shibori techniques, click here for a quick and easy DIY. xo, grace
