My friend, Yayoi, has opened a business, called Yayoi Shibori.
This is what Yayoi has to say on her website:
“YAYOI SHIBORI features tees, sleeveless tees, silk scarves and Shibori wraps and bags. Every item in the shop is individually hand-dyed by me, Yayoi. I use a hand-dyeing technique known throughout the world as Shibori. Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. The word comes from the verb root shiboru, ‘to wring, squeeze, press.'”
Here are photos of some of Yayoi’s work (click on the photos to enlarge them):
