Four thick-ribbed 100% cotton placemats, measuring approximately 13 x 18 inches. The placemats were gray to begin with, so the resulting pattern is very subtle as there is less contrast with the indigo. These were stitched vertically and I pulled the stitches until the mat was flattened. The vertical tonal variations echo the rib.

The fun in doing shibori is seeing the pattern emerge as you undo the clamping, binding, or stitching. Repeatedly dipping the fabric in an indigo vat determines the depth of color, which makes each piece even more unique. Starting with colored fabric adds another variable. Variations are expected and appreciated. Please see my shop policy regarding dyeing fabric.

Machine wash gentle in cold water with like colors. They can be tumbled dry on medium but remove from the dryer promptly. Or line dry out of direct sun. Iron as needed.
