Shibori is a traditional Japanese dyeing craft. It involves binding fabric through folding, twisting, and stitching techniques to create a resist. The bound fabric is then dyed, most commonly, with natural indigo.
Due to the natural indigo dyeing process each fabric will vary in pattern slightly and some color softening may naturally occur after the first laundering.
