There are many ways to create a design on fabric. In Thailand, tie-dyeing has been applied for a long time because it is not complicated to learn. As Shibori, one of the well-known Japanese dyeing, this consists with tie-binding, folding, and pole-binding. The plain stitch and bound stitch are often used for color isolating. The distance during the stitch is 0.5 centimeter; a needle used should be bigger than ordinary one which makes easier fabric gathering and obvious design demonstrating. The thread used for Shibori must be strong and non-organic for protecting color absorption and failing the design creation. Furthermore, Shibori Dyeing also includes other subordinated processes which are...
Shishige Nui Sewing, sewing on one layer fabric and gathering it tightly.
Ori-Nui Shibori Fold-Sewing, fold a rim of fabric reach to the mark and then make a sew it together.
MaKi-age Shibori Sewing and Tie-Binding, sew following the draw line and gathering it tightly, and then tie the rest of the thread
Bomaki Murakumo Pole-Binding, sew the rim of a fabric reaching another side and then insert PVC pole, gathering that fabric and tie it with plastic rope.
Most of every dyeing in the world has common process which is applicable and adaptive. However, the most important thing is procedure and knowledge conservation, people in the next generation can learn the skill and apply for work. Moreover, the following result from knowledge gaining is creativity which leads development and improvement toward the old thing such as format, design, process etc. The old thing is good, but creativity will make a better value.
