DIY Shibori with Indigo

Supplies: Jacquard Indigo Dye kit here
Organic Cotton Plus fabric in natural


A little different than tie dye, Shibori is a Japanese method of dying patterns by twisting, binding, wrapping, folding, and such. The main dye used for this technique is Indigo because of its easy to create resist patterns on fabric. Jacquard products make it simple to create this ancient natural dye using their Indigo kit here

Get the details on how to DIY below. 



The left design was created by folding accordion like folds and binding them to wood with rubber bands. 

The right was created by tightly wrapping the fabric on a pole using twine/thread, then scrunched. 


Tie dye looks great with indigo as well. Just twisting the middle of the fabric and binding with rubber bands created such a wonderful pattern.

  1. These are both great patterns, hard to choose. I can see both being used for different pieces and looking equally lovely. I guess I'd choose the left!
