Woven Shibori Scarf Blanks by Catharine Ellis

Developed by weaver and dyer Catharine Ellis (North Carolina, USA) in the 1990s, these woven shibori scarf blanks utilize weaving structure as a resist technique. Inspired by traditional Japanese nui (stitched) shibori, the blanks are woven with supplemental warp or weft threads which create resist patterns upon gathering.

You can learn more about the woven shibori process in Catharine’s book, Woven Shibori.
