Shibori in the fashion world

Wow, Vera Wang is actually marketing sheets that are done in a blue and white shibori pattern….  Rhythmic patterns achieved by binding the fabric repetitively.  Rich to the eye, and a delight to see mainstreaming into culture.

Knowing Shibori began as a method to differentiate clothing, to create different pattern, to stand out from the crowd it would only make sense to see this textile art make its way into the fashion world of designers.

Insets of neckline of shibori fabric makes this designer garment stand out from the crowd.  Wow would i love to be able to wear something so slim and classic.

Where else has Shibori made its appearance?  Garments, handbags, accessories… its everywhere:

And this soft and luxurious appearing handbag:

Shibori has application to any fabric.  Seeing these examples has made me consider fabric other than silk.
