Blue Circles Saka-boushi Shibori Tenugui
*SOLD-OUT ITEMS CAN BE PRE-ORDERED FOR DELIVERY IN APPROXIMATELY TWO MONTHS.
Stitched & capped-resist on reversed ground
Technique: Saka-boushi Shibori - The reverse of boushi shibori, also known as tako-boushi (octopus-shaped capped resist), where the ground rather than the motif is capped to keep the ground white. This process resembles oke-shibori, tub-resist dyeing, where the fabric is placed in a container and only the patterns are exposed to receive dyes. Process illustrations are from the book “Shibori: The Inventive Art of Japanese Shaped Resist Dyeing” by Wada, Rice, and Barton. (c)1983
Pattern: Circles, when formed by the boushi shibori technique, they have distinctive soft outlines that cannot be produced in any other way. The insides of the circles also record the way the cloth was manipulated into a 3-D shape to resist dye and create the tactile quality of the shibori pattern. Color: Dark blue/White
Approximately 1m x 35cm (39in x 13in)
Handmade in Arimatsu, Japan
Tenugui are scarf-size, all-purpose towels made of lightweight cotton, used in Japan for centuries and recently popularized and collected because of their beautiful patterns and graphic designs.
