How is Shibori Done - II



In the next stage, the stitched designs are thoroughly checked and then each thread is painstakingly tightened. An eleborate design can often have upto 200 threads that need to be meticulously tightened.

Checking the tightened piece of Shibori comprises the next essential stage. The checked piece is then dyed repeatedly till the required shade of colour is achieved. In Shibori that's indigo particularly, the stages of dyeing can often go upto 10 to achieve the correct depth of colour. Post dyeing, the piece is scrutinized yet again to ensure that dyeing has occured uniformly. After this, it is opened to rveal the Shibori design. Lastly, the opened piece is fixed using an organic fixer so that colour fastness can be ensured.
