Kanoko shibori
Kanoko shibori is what is commonly thought of in the West as tie-dye. It involves binding certain sections of the cloth using thread – traditionally a type of untwisted thread known as shike-ito – to achieve the desired pattern. The pattern achieved depends on how tightly the cloth is bound and where the cloth is bound. If random sections of the cloth are bound, the result will be a pattern of random circles. If the cloth is first folded then bound, the resulting circles will be in a pattern depending on the fold used. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibori#Itajime_shibori

All items are described to the best of my ability there may be small or minor flaws that I have overlooked but I try to be as accurate as possible in my listing.

I am happy to combine postage. Due to a large family and 4 small children, I am only able to post off items once a week. Please bear this in mind when bidding :)
