The ancient art of shibori

Woman's peach shibori scarf by Ruru Textiles

Not only is this scarf completely gorgeous, it also has a fascinating story, which all good accessories should. Rosemary of Ruru Textiles in Rotorua dyes her textiles using the ancient Japanese art (as far back as the 8th century!) of shibori, a range of techniques that produce more or less intricate designs on fabric. Isn’t it a stunning effect?
