Handmade Nui Shibori
🌺 Unfolding Uniqueness
In the early 20th century, the Japanese style of Shibori was introduced to India, by Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore. With Nui-Shibori, one stitches the sections where they don't want the dye to penetrate.🤩Definite shapes are drawn and then stitching is used inside or on the edges to create the resist. It is all about using stitching as a resist.
There are three major categories of shibori in Japan – Kokechi (tied or bound resists), Rokechi (wax resists), and Kyokechi (clamped resists). The three categories include 6 main types of Shibori - Kanoko, Kumo, Nui, Miura, Miura, Itajime
