This is so very awesome! Great place to get a mix of dyed fabric scraps for crafts. I am so glad I found this store on etsy!

This is honestly an unbelievable piece of work! I cannot believe how evenly the stitching and pleats are aligned -- this takes real talent and patience. Thank you very much. What a treasure!

Oh, oh, oh, gorgeous pieces! I love shibori, I love indigo. My mind is churning with ideas for them.
Unique Hand Dyed Shibori Fabrics
I have always loved working with fabric and fiber. There was batik, quilting, knitting, rug hooking, printing fabric, and dyeing. A few years ago I arrived at Shibori, the ancient Japanese resist technique in which fabric is manipulated and dyed to create pattern. This process entails many aspects of creating, that I truly love. I get to spend hours hand stitching, surrounded by spools of thread, a vintage pincushion, and a crisp cotton or textured linen. After stitching and the fabrics are pulled tight to resist the dye, I slosh around in buckets of color turning white material into beautiful patterns. Finally, the magic is revealed after all the stitches are removed. That is an exciting moment, since I can't be exactly sure how the finished piece will appear.
Although the stitched pieces are my first love, pole wrapping and folding are fun and offer infinite possibilities. I continually try new designs, while I'm restocking the favorites.
I also like my part-time gig in a pottery studio, gardening, drawing and painting (when there's time), and activities that have to do with food. Traveling is pretty great, too.

International orders do not include tracking but will come with a 'customs declaration' number which can be somewhat trackable through your customs. If you live in a country with a high theft rate, please be advised that I cannot be responsible for your package if it goes missing on your end. If you would like added security for your package, you may purchase registered mail for an additional $11.00 which gives you a signature confirmation and is quite safe. Feel free to contact me for either this option or for an expedited shipping upgrade to International Express (3-6 day delivery), I can invoice you through PayPal. Please do be aware of your customs fees as these are your responsibility.
When purchasing multiple items, the computer calculations are such that you may be overcharged for shipping. I refund any overage exceeding $1.00 US.

Since Shibori is a labor intensive and slow process, I regret that I am not able to offer wholesale pricing.
