The ancient Japanese art of shibori is a resist dyeing technique commonly used to decorate silk or cotton found on Obi’s and Kimonos.
Shibori textiles have put their own spin on the technique applying it to different materials such as upholstery fabrics, wood, wallpaper and leather.
While modern technology assists design applications to material printing transfer, all Shibori leather stays with the tradition and is hand dyed using Shibori textile’s own methods.
Leather is a unique material as it is not like fabric with a warp and a weft but rather has the quality of skin and each individual skin grabs the dye giving more definition and room for spontaneous design.
