Shibori Koinobori (S)
With the Shibori koinobori, Madame Mo highlights a color, indigo, and an ancestral technique, shibori.
What is shibori? It literally means "to squeeze by twisting" in Japanese. It is a type of dyeing practiced for thousands of years (13th century) in the land of the Rising Sun. The concept? To carry out a series of twists and folds on textiles, maintained by links, which will be then plunged in baths of bluish dye. The result: the fabrics are adorned with unique geometric patterns!
Where does this deep shibori blue come from? From indigo, one of the oldest natural dyes of vegetable origin in the art of dyeing.
