keeping up

miura shibori

with the aizome fad. this meter twenty five cm long cotton was bought in takayama at a lovely broccante shop where i also bought a loom reed made from reeds-hence the name- and an itomaki.
the cotton fabric, patterned in miura shibori, is long and wide enough to be used as a neck wrap. great for spring weather.
the photo was found during the  weekend cleaning frenzy . i even cleaned and organized my computer  files!

    yes, i suppose it can be qualified as a fad. for some.
    hard to imagine it that way since it does take some time and practice to really understand its possibilities and make good use of them.

    what next? a weaving fad?

    miura shibori is always lovely and random. i have a couple of purchased samples myself but have not produced anything myself in this pattern i thought worthy of a photograph. yet.

    Absolutly stunning! I would frame it, yeah, or wear it!

  3. do you feel like a trip to the north country to do a bit more cleaning???! lovely fabric--i've been wanting to try a japanese spinning wheel.

    Just found your blog today and I'm loving it. Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful images. I'd like to get into dyeing but it looks like the kind of dyes I have available to me (idye for synthetics or idye for natural fibres) might not work very well with Shibori techniques.


interaction appreciated!
