Harime soroe shibori

Stitching as a way to resist dye has been used to a greater extent by the Japanese than by any other people. They have found through flexibility and control that this technique allows designs of great variety- delicate, bold, simple complex, pictorial, or abstract.

Join Makiko Tokunaga and me for a Harime soroe shibori workshop in the North Carolina Mountains.

The unique effects possible with stitched shibori are created by the types of stitch, if the fabric is folded, and the arrangement of the stitches.

After the stitching of a piece is completed, the cloth is drawn into tight gathers or pleats and secured by knotting. It is then dyed.

  • Trace the pattern with blue and pink washable pens
