Bound-resist & stitch-resist bands with Chinese lantern plant pattern

Technique: Boushi Shibori - Capped motif binding thread resist / Kumo Shibori - A slightly moistened cloth is caught on a hook made specifically for this type of shibori. The cloth is then pulled taut by the hook and drawn evenly into folds around it. The shaped cloth is held firmly while thread is bound in even spaces from the base of the unit, where the gathered folds are held, to the top near the hook. The thread is brought back to the starting point at the base by making several turns around the bound cloth. The thread is neither knotted nor cut but is carried to the next unit.  Process illustrations are from the book “Shibori: The Inventive Art of Japanese Shaped Resist Dyeing”  by Wada, Rice, and Barton. (c)1983

Pattern: Houzuki - Chinese Lantern plant / Yoroidan -  Stripes (literally “great armor”), derived from yoroi or  Ō-yoroi, a type of plated samurai armor from feudal Japan. ' Ō-yoroi were visually recognizable from the horizontally striped pattern created by plated scales laced horizontally over an armor plate. The stripe design and colors of the scales often represented a samurai’s rank and clan.
