Immerse yourself in the ancient Japanese dyeing process called SHIBORI. “Arashi Shibori”, which means, ”storm”, is the term used for patterns created by wrapping fabric around a pole. String is then wrapped around the fabric compressing it into pleats. The fabric is pushed to the end of the pole and dipped into a dye bath. In Japan large smooth wooden poles are used and it takes two big guys to push the pleated fabric to one end of the pole. The modern version uses PVC pipe instead, which is much lighter in weight.
