Shibori tie-dye t-shirt

Shibori tie-dye t-shirt


Adult supervision essential.


This kit and tutorial has been put together for us by our textiles teacher Maia. Shibori is a resist dyeing technique from Japan. Fabric is folded, tied or clamped and then dyed - these ties and folds stop the dye reaching the fabric and make a pattern. Shibori traditionally uses blue indigo dye which is why we’ve chosen it for our kit.


Included for you is:

  • Protective gloves
  • Elastic bands
  • Scraps of fabric to practice with
  • A plain white 100% cotton t-shirt 
  • Lots of ideas and hints and tips
