What is "SHIBORI"?

SHIBORI is made by a craftsman repeatedly pinching and rolling the fabric, carefully binding each and every grain. The bound areas will not be dyed, creating a SHIBORI pattern.
Each and every grain pinched is extremely precise, making it the most difficult technique for a craftsman. The masterful arrangement of such finely-pinched grains neatly along the entire surface of a kimono continues to newly astound people even today.
