Random looped & bound-resist and hand pleating
Technique: Yatara-miura Shibori -Randomly placed soft outlines of small resist-bound shapes. Small portions of cloth are gathered on a hook shaped specifically for this process and and bound with cotton thread to create a soft outline resist / Tesuji Shibori - Resisted stripes created by continuous rows of cloth hand-pleated and bound evenly around a rope
Patterns: The robust yatara-miura shibori fills an organic undulating field of random round looped-bound resisted units evoking fish roe. Simple diagonal hand pleated tesuji shibori lines dissect the field to create this dynamic pattern.
