Story:

Arashi Shibori is the Japanese art of pleating and dyeing fabric on a pole giving diagonal lines of colour which is reminiscent of ‘driving rain’.
The silk is first dyed in the base colours, ironed dry and then folded and bound around a pole or tube. The bound silk is pushed up the pole to create pleats and then overdyed with contrasting dye colours. The silk is steamed on the pole to set the dyes.
Due to the nature of the dyeing method, each piece is unique.
