No Thanks

For these examples, we mordanted our silk, then let it dry before doing our designs, but you can apply the shibori before or after mordanting.

Step 1

Gather your materials

1 silk scarf
a few rubber bands

Step 2

swirl natural dye kit silk

Pinch the center of the silk and rotate the silk in a swirling motion.

Step 3

 Swirled tight shibori natural dye kit

Make sure your swirl is secure. The tighter your swirl + binding are, the more white space there will be in your final product. For more color, make your swirl and your binding a little looser.

Step 4

Rubber band shibori natural dye kit

Tightly secure your swirl with rubber bands, pre-wet your bundle, then add it to your dye bath.

Step 5
