Woven Shibori Blank - Sample Set
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. The 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.
