We enjoy showing and sharing the magic of natural indigo with people from all over the world in Japanese and English. We can discuss and demonstrate all kinds of techniques, depending on your interests and experience.


The magic of shibori with natural indigo is that no two pieces are exactly the same. The tension of the pulled thread, the thickness or density of the fabric, the time exposed to dye or oxygen, the power of the dye (which changes every day), all of these create beautiful variations.

Here are some of the techniques we use:

A lot of the tools to make shibori are everyday things you may have at home, but the dye itself requires skill to make, maintain and use.
