It is a surprising thing that despite being an age-old technique, Shibori has not lost its charm. It never fails to find a buyer for itself. The magic lies in the process of doing the Shibori printing. Different and unique patterns are created by twisting, folding, and binding the fabric using strings, bands, wooden blocks, etc. Each time a unique pattern is produced. If the technique is repeated, we will see a new unique design. That is what distinguishes Shibori from other printing methods. It is this unique quality that attracts the people most towards it. Another fascinating fact is, the creator himself is unaware of what design or pattern will be formed on the fabric. Continuous repetition of this technique will give you a new and unique result.
