I love the freedom, the spontaneity, and the wabi sabi of shibori dyeing, but sometimes I wish I was a bit more organized. I coffee-dyed this bamboo scarf and I LOVE the itajime impressions that came through. The problem? I have NO IDEA how I did this! I think I know what I used as resists, but I have used the same wood circular blocks in the past and not gotten this kind of result at all. I must have done something different. Oh well, I guess I’ll just “appreciate the fleeting nature of shibori.” Or ‘live in the present moment.” Or “be one with the ephemeral nature of art.” Or something like that.
