Similar to tie-dye and bandhani in principle, shibori is a Japanese form of multi-technique, resist dyeing. We incorporate tie-dye, mud resist, clamp resist, stitch resist, local application, block print, and various other methodologies in our shibori fabrics, resulting in some of the most striking patterns.
We use also 100% natural dyes and most of our shibori artists are women from neighbouring villages. Though our shibori is done on our handloom fabric, we also train rural women - elderly widows, single mothers, and anyone interested - to use the technique on readily available fabric. This empowers them to create value-added, sellable products as a way of earning their livelihood.
