Shibori Dyeing 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 Now Have Indigo!

New to Rit in 2019, this rich blue tone is the traditional shade used when shibori dyeing.

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.

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!

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.”
