Shibori Silk

Shibori Silk Ribbon from Shibori Girl.

Shibori is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique that creates patterns in fabric by binding, stitching, folding, or twisting. You might be more familiar with the process as tie-dye. Using bright, rich complementary colors and high quality, hand dyed silk ribbon, were able to recreate this ancient dyeing technique in our line of Japanese Shibori silk.

Sold by the yard and pleated to a width of 1 once finished, this silk ribbon features pleating and coloring that is steam set to ensure the longevity of the shape and color. We love using this Shibori silk for jewelry, making additions to garments, bookbinding, and many more projects. How will you use our Japanese silk? Share your creations with us!
