shibori (絞り染め just for fun) is a japanese word that refers to a method of dying cloth. it’s pretty much everywhere right now, and I love it. it’s like tie dye is super popular again (outside of the elementary school crowd), except this seems to be a more refined and elegant version of it. the best part is that it’s also very easy to diy. also how incredibly dreamy is that couch?! that was the look I was going for when I experimented with painting one of my couch cushions… never again. it ended up looking like camo. in any case, I was much more successful with some cotton shirts, traditional dye, and this tutorial.
