The Shibori 絞 り technique is always part of the reserve dyeing technique. In shibori, the “reserve” (ie portions of non-dyed fabric) is obtained by tightly binding or sewing the fabric.
The resulting fabric has a characteristic, wrinkled surface, as the bonded portions remain in relief.
The most common mode found in Kimono and accessories is the Kanoko Shibori か の こ 絞 り, in which small portions of fabric are wrapped with thread. The resulting design is a small white circle.
Ligatures are then arranged so as to compose larger designs, usually flowers, or linear motifs such as waves or geometric patterns.
It is a rather ancient technique, in Japan it was used already from the fourth century AD It is still very much appreciated and laborious to perform.
A kimono made entirely of Shibori can take up to a year to work. Nowadays there are also examples of mechanically created shibori.
The technique is very common for the Obiage and Heko obi. It is also found on Kimono and obi, more often used only in particular, but also present on whole pieces, and is considered informal.
However, Furisode can also be found entirely decorated with this technique.
A special technique of shibori is the Tsujigahana 辻 ヶ 花. In general, it presents motifs of flowers and leaves, which are reserved by the base color by sewing the contours. The details are then hand painted.
This technique dates from the late 15th-early 16th century, but was later lost to the Yuzen booster. It was recovered in modern times thanks to Itchiku Kubota.
