Comments Many people are familiar with tie-dye shibori however there are other shibori dyeing techniques as well. Itajime shibori is another style.

Itajime shibori is a shaped-resist method whereby cloth is sandwiched between two pieces of wood which are held in place with tied cords. The bundle is immersed into a dye vat. The tightly wrapped wood blocks prevent the dye from completely penetrating the fabric they cover. The resulting fabric has a singular shibori pattern which is impossible to reproduce again with another similar block tied fabric.
