Shibori: Colors

Our colored shibori fabrics are hand-dyed by women artisans in India.  Some of these designs are made on cambric, a soft lightweight cotton slightly heavier than batiste.  Others are chanderi cotton/silk blend (a semi-sheer fabric with an organza-like drape and silky sheen) or handwoven silk tussar (wild silk).

Some shibori techniques involve gathering the fabric with needle and thread; any remaining needle holes will close up once the fabric is washed.
