Shibori dyeing is traditionally blue.
What plant is used to create the dye?
The dye used in shibori comes from the indigo plant.
One shibori technique is called "arashi," which is the Japanese word for "storm." Which of these was made using arashi methods?
This is an example of arashi shibori. Notice how the diagonal lines look like heavy rain.
Itajime shibori is made by folding the fabric and binding it between pieces of wood. Which of these do you think was made using this method?
This is an example of itajime shibori. Notice the geometric lines where the fabric was creased.
Kanoko shibori is the method most similar to our Western idea of tie-dye. Besides rubberbands/threads, this example was created using marbles or small pebbles. How can they be used to get this effect?
In kanoko shibori, the fabric can be wrapped around small pebbles or marbles and secured with rubberbands. This leaves a circular pattern that can be repetitive or very organic (depending on your materials.)
Bonus (2 pts): Hypothesize how this design could be made using dye (it is not painted or drawn on).
This is nui shibori. It is made by using a running stitch, and pulling the thread tight to gather the fabric.
