Woven Shibori Blank - Sample Set

Regular price $60.00

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.åÊThe sample set includes five patterns: blocks, chevron, diagonal, small circles, and zig-zag.

5 samples, approximately 30 x 28cm (12 x 11in). 75% mercerized pima cotton, 25% combed cotton; heavyweight jacquard. Machine serged edge with 100% cotton thread. Woven by Oriole Mill in Hendersonville, North Carolina, USA.
