Portfolio > Kumo Shibori

Shibori is the Japanese art of binding,tying,twisting, stitching, or wrapping fabric in preparation for the dyeing process. Kumo means "spider" in Japanese and kumo shibori is a specific binding technique which results in a spiderweb pattern when the dyed fabric is unbound. I am interested in the bound form of the fabric and the threatening yet benign quality it possesses.
