Shibori's Profile

About

I've always been fascinated by the subtle and intricate texture and images woven into fabric, especially Japanese kimono silk. Many of the images are inspired by nature and appear almost abstract, however the use of color and texture bring images to life. Once you have learned to appreciate vintage silk, it is difficult to feel the same about contemporary fabrics. With each piece comes the feeling of holding a piece of history. Adding it to the construction of another garment or to a piece of art, gives it a chance to serve a second time.

Whether you share a love for vintage fabrics or not, I hope that you will find something on my site that you like and that you will turn it into something beautiful!

I invite you to read the feedback from Shibori's wonderful customers, it is our pleasure to serve them…
