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