An exploration of happy accidents through the process of Indigo dyeing.
Tie dye processes like shibori are generally processes of trial and error. You fold, twist, pinch, tie and twirl your fabric meticulously and precisely, and dip it into a vat of brilliantly colored Indigo dye. Often times, people expect to get precise patterns and designs based on their method of folding.
It’s really hard, and nearly impossible, to predict exactly what parts of the cloth will absorb how much of the dye, but that’s what makes this such a fun process; it’s what leads to happy accidents!
