Shibori Itajime is an ancient dyeing technique which produces patterns on fabric. The fabric is placed between two pieces of wood, or tied with rubber bands. When dyeing the fabric, the barriers prevent the dye from penetrating the fabric they cover, resulting in various unique patterns throughout the fabric.
