Island Love Studio

Shibori is a Japanese art form that is centuries old. It involves folding, binding, gathering or stitching to manipulate fabric to resist dye, creating unique patterns and designs. I use a stitch resist technique that starts with strategically hand stitching the design, tightening numerous threads and knotting them, dyeing the fabric, then carefully removing each thread to reveal the piece. A binding technique is used to create the designs on my towels and scarves. in 2020 I turned my passion for Shibori into a full time career. My designs are inspired by the diverse natural environment here on Hawai'i Island and the surrounding waters.  Stop by my booth, say hi and ask me about my art.
