This season we’re delighted to introduce our bold new Shibori Rug Collection. These eye-catching Shibori Rugs are inspired by the ancient Japanese tie-dyeing technique known for their blue color shades and fluid blurry-edged shapes.
Crafted with wool that’s hand-dyed to deep saturated indigo hues, Shibori Rugs bring the ocean to mind and feelings of tranquility.
Japanese Shibori techniques dates back to the 8th century as a method for dying textiles and kimonos. In order to achieve the desired tie-dyed look, the material was first twisted, crumpled and folded in a number of different ways and then dyed in rich indigo blue hues. Areas of the cloth were bound with dye resistant materials that would preserve areas of white in contrast with the indigo. With infinite possibilities, Shibori has inspired designers all over the world to create new patterns and explore the endless possibilities of Shibori.
Our Shibori Rugs celebrate this captivating art form. Due to their unique patterns and use of rich blues, they’re easy to incorporate into modern decor or serve as a standout element within a room. Not to mention, the indigo shades offer a sense of elegance and serenity. As with all things handmade, each rug varies slightly in tone and style, further adding to the unique personality of traditional Shibori textiles.
