«Shibori ripples across the globe. This ancient dye and resist craft takes its name from the Japanese verb meaning «to wring, squeeze or press» and has became an umbrella term for over 100 different techniques. A plethora of pleating, folding, clamping, tying, stitching, wrapping and binding methods have developed in Japan over centuries to create intrincate patterns in cloth. Today, imitations and adaptations can be found throughout the world, with a different significance in each tying-and-dying community.»
