Shibori with Rit!

Shibori is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique that involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and then binding it to create incredible patterns. The dyeing process is quite playful and the end result is undeniably stylish. We love how no one dyeing will ever be the same, making it clear that the item was hand dyed.

We Have Indigo

Shibori is traditionally done with Indigo hues. We have developed color formulas to achieve the Indigo shade of your choosing.

Arashi Shibori 101

Arashi is the Japanese term for “storm.” It’s also known as the pole-wrapping technique because it involves wrapping fabric around a pole (or PVC pipe). The results are beautiful, often resembling water waves. Click for easy step-by-steps and a helpful video.

Learn Kanoko Shibori

The Kanoko shibori style is one of the easier Shibori techniques to duplicate because it only requires some twine. Plus, it is the most similar to tie dyeing! Click for easy step-by-steps and a helpful video.

How to Itajime

The Itajime style is the most classic shibori look. Its the one that most people think of when they hear the word “shibori.”

Some of Our Favorite Projects Right Now

Velvet Pillows

These pillows are so incredibly easy to do, but look sophisticated and much more challenging than they actually are. We love how the velvet texture steps up the traditional shibori look.

Muslin Blanket

See how our friend Little Green Notebook transformed a plain white muslin blanket into a unique one-of-a-kind shibori dyed piece with her very own gorgeous blush custom color formula.
