Covering history and method, this introduction to the breakthrough technique of woven shibori embraces new approaches to the art of weaving and dyeing. With this guide, weavers of all skill levels, using any type of loom, can explore woven shibori. Unlike traditional shibori, which uses stitches placed by needle on commercial cloth in the dyeing process, the "stitches" used in this new process are woven directly into the cloth, thus becoming part of the cloth's construction. After sections on the history of shibori and its many cultural variants, the chapters move on to thorough instructions in a range of weaving applications, from plain twills to laces. Examples, tips, and safety guides for the dyeing process are included, opening up a world of creative possibilities for weavers, textile, and fiber artists.
