The Swedish Shibori Society consists of a group of artists and designers who work with, interpret and are inspired by the Japanese technique of shibori.
What is Shibori?
In the beginning, Shibori was an ancient traditional Japanese handcraft and form concept that included methods of twisting, pressing and pulling tight. Today the word is used as a general international term that describles both artistic expression and technique. Shibori includes a number of different ways of dyeing, patterning and forming textile material and/or transforming it in a more conceptual sense.
