Shibori is a Japanese manual resist dyeing technique, producing patterns on fabric. The earliest known cloth dyed with a shibori technique dates from the 8th century. Shibori is often done on natural fabrics, silk, hemp or cotton. Shibori dyeing is making patterns on fabric by exposing only some portions of the fabric to dye, most of the work lies in the preparation.
