Woven Shibori Scarf Blanks by Catharine Ellis

Developed by weaver and dyer Catharine Ellis (North Carolina, USA) in the 1990s, these woven shibori scarf blanks utilize weaving structure as a resist technique. Inspired by traditional Japanese nui (stitched) shibori, the blanks are woven with supplemental weft threads which create resist patterns upon gathering. They are woven on either a Jacquard loom with a heavier weight cotton yarn or on a Dobby loom with lighter yarn. This information is noted in each scarf's product description.

You can learn more about the woven shibori process in Catharine's book, Woven Shibori and from the following video demo Catharine created with Galli Creative.
