Tie-dyeing Atelier MORIMOTO

[023-01]Atelier visit & handkerchief dyeing workshop (itajime-shibori technique)


Enjoy a tie-dyeing workshop under the guidance of a traditional master-craftsman and make your own unique souvenir from Kyoto.

The long history of Kyoto shibori dyeing goes back to the 10th century, when it was used to decorate the garments of the Imperial Court. The technique takes its name from the similarity with the fawn spots. Itajime-shibori is a shaped-resist dyeing that consists of folding a piece of cloth, clamping it between two wooden boards and applying the dye. The patterns obtained using this shibori technique are bold and modern. Have fun dyeing your own original handkerchief and create unpredictable subtle patterns that are never the same and change depending on the degree of penetration of the dye into the fabric.
