Resist Dyed

SHIBORI

Shibori Art is a Japanese manual resist dyeing technique, which produces a number of different patterns on fabric. There are many ways to create shibori; however, most techniques have names, and these techniques have a number of varieties. At Anuprerna, our Shibori pattern fabric is created by weaving thick threads, to be used for tying as resist, directly into the fabric.

INTRODUCTION TO SHIBORI ART:

Shibori is one of the resist dyeing techniques where the fabric is resisted by using threads in the desired pattern & the dyed. The tied threads resist the dye from penetrating the fabric in those areas, thus producing a unique pattern each time. There are several different types under the Shibori techniques depending on how the resist is applied.

Anuprerna is closely working with Shibori Artisans from a cluster located in the district of Nadia in West Bengal.

HISTORY OF SHIBORI DYEING:

There are some discussions and debates over the origin of Shibori as a technique of Japan. The earliest surviving examples of shibori-dyed cloth date back to the mid-8th century donated to the Todai-ji Buddhist temple in Nara in 756 C.E. upon the death of Emperor Shomu. The techniques seen on these earliest fragments show bound resists and clamped resists.


VARIOUS SHIBORI TECHNIQUES:

Kanoko shibori- Kanoko shibori is what is commonly thought of in the West as tie-dye. It involves binding certain sections of the cloth to achieve the desired pattern. Traditional shibori requires the use of thread for binding. If random sections of the cloth are bound, the result will be a pattern of random circles.

Miura shibori- Miura shibori is also known as looped binding. It involves taking a hooked needle and plucking sections of the cloth. Then a thread is looped around each section twice. The resulting dyed cloth is a water-like design.

Kumo shibori- Kumo shibori is a pleated and bound resist. The result is a very specific spider-like design.

Nui shibori- Nui shibori includes stitched (simple running stitch) shibori. The fabric is stitched 1st, the thread is then pulled to gather up fabric and knot.

Arashi shibori- Arashi shibori is also known as pole-wrapping shibori.

Itajime shibori- Itajime shibori is a shaped-resist technique. The shapes prevent the dye from penetrating the fabric they cover.

At Anuprerna, our Shibori pattern fabric is created by pulling and tying threads woven directly into the fabric and then dyeing.
