Shibori Tool Kit - Tsukidashi
Imported from Arimatsu, Japan, famous for its shibori traditions dating back to the Edo period, this kit includes a full set of artisan tools for creating tsukidashi kanoko (spaced dots), rasen (spiral binding), and bai (shell binding) shibori patterns.
Made in Japan from rust-resistant stainless steel, these blunt point needles are used for open-wound binding shibori techniques. The "needle" enables fabrication of specific effects not possible with a shibori hook: tiny resist units, fine pleating, and evenly spaced binding threads.
Approximately 16cm (6.5in) long.
Hand-lathed Shibori Bobbin - Kanoko
Hand-lathed and imported from Japan, these wooden bobbins are designed for creating kanoko (dots) shibori patterns.
Approximately 7 x 2.5cm (2.75 x 1in) outer dimensions; 5 x 1cm (2 x .5in) core.
Cotton Shibori Thread - Binding
Imported from Japan, this 100% cotton thread is the same kind used by professional shibori artisans in Arimatsu. It has a soft twist which allows for some give when wrapping fabric, resulting in a cleaner, tighter pattern. Use for all types of bound patterns including te-kumo (spiderweb), makiage (crisscross binding), bōshi (capped), and tesuji (hand-pleated).
Stainless Steel Shibori Stand
Approximately 19 x 13 x 3cm (7.5 x 5 x 1.25in); 220g.
