Folding, Clamping, Dyeing – Shibori in 2 stages

Shibori Patterned Scarf
Patterns were created by folding and wrapping on this twill silk scarf.

I’ve just taken some new scarves to my main outlet, a gift shop in Southport (UK). After experimenting with different ways of folding and dyeing to create patterns on the silk, I came up with a two step process using shibori techniques. A short clip of the second step can be viewed on my Instagram. I’m painting on twill silk, a heavier weight that takes the dye beautifully and is less slippy on clothes than crepe de chine. I only have a fair idea of how the patterns will look when the scarf is unwrapped from its folds or unrolled from around the tube.
