I'm talking about Shibori Indigo dyeing and I'm sort of crazy about it. If you have been following my Instagram recently, you may have seen how I just scored some amazing Hmong Indigo fabric from Thailand that I made pillow covers out of. I really love the pop of Indigo in here and so I'm in the process of experimenting with different ways to incorporate it through out our home.
My idea was these amazing tea towels that keep popping up everywhere!!
Shibori is actually a Japanese technique that involves twisting, bunching or tying fabric along with using wood blocks and rubber bands to create patterns and dyeing it with Indigo dye. The possibilities of design pattern's are endless. I used this tutorial HERE as a guide along with the instructions on my dye kit.
I purchased the dye kit HERE and I also used two pieces of scrap wood tied together with rubber bands as my stir stick...I had to get creative since I needed a long one and didn't have anything else on hand.
