Read on for detailed photos of the entire process and try your hand at the hand-dyed technique at home!
Pam: "Shibori" is an ancient Japanese tie-dying technique. Patterns were created by folding, compressing, binding and stitching fabric in various ways prior to dying to create different patterns. Unlike modern multi-colored tie-dyed items, the Shibori technique used only one color. Indigo was the most popular.
