Here are some of the frequently asked questions:

1. How is Shibori tie-dye done?

Shibori is a Japanese technique of dyeing fabrics in a certain way to create patterns. Traditionally, there are six main types of Shibori dyeing techniques- Itajime, Nui, Kumo, Arashi, Kanoko and Miura. Shibori technique only used indigo hues in older times, creating white and blue patterns on the fabric. Shibori technique of painting patterns on materials can be called the predecessor to modern tie-dyeing art. 

  • Itajime tie-dye is done to create repetitive quadrilateral blocks of patterns on the fabric, and this process was done by using wooden blocks to sandwich the folded cloth on both sides, tied in place with strings or bands. 
  • Kanoko method is the most popular form of tie-dyeing as it involves using rubber bands or strings to grab some portions of the cloth, twist and tie them, resulting in unique, swirly or abstract patterns of colours. This is basically like tie-dyeing.
  • Nui is kind of similar to Kanoko, the only difference being it uses stitches to bind fabric parts together. Thus, it is popularly known as the stitch resist technique. 
  • Kumo is a somewhat different process that involves wrapping the fabric in pleats and twists around a stick or rock or any object, creating a swirly web-like pattern on the fabric.
  • Arashi technique involves wrapping the fabric around a pipe or a thick rod and is bound to the rod with a string or rope, creating beautiful wavy diagonal patterns.
  • Miura technique, also known as the looped-binding technique, uses a needle to gather fabric sections and tie them up with a string. 

2. What is the difference between tie-dye and Shibori tie-dye?

Shibori is a term that includes six varieties of resist painting techniques of fabric. Shibori tie-dyeing has its history and origin in Japan. Tie-dyeing has its head in Africa. It was a traditional and popular form of painting fabrics and America, where it was seen as a form of artistic freedom in the face of strict social norms of the 50s. 

Tie-dye involves tying portions of the cloth with a string before dyeing it in multiple vibrant colours with circular or abstract patterns and hues. Shibori fabric was traditionally silk, and Shibori prints were usually used for decorating silk for the aristocracy in Japan. Furthermore, it traditionally involved only indigo hue; thus, the Shibori painted fabrics were always blue and white. 

Although in modern times, instead of Shibori silk, we often use other fabrics like cotton. Shibori includes many different techniques apart from just the string technique of tie-dyeing. From the block shape resist dyeing to resist dyeing or the pole wrapping technique, Shibori has multiple techniques.
