My business (outside of my day job) is crafting scarves and shawls using the ancient Japanese art of tie and dye known as “shibori”. My scarves are available through my Etsy store, http://joydidit.etsy.com and I am starting to do shows. I am proud to have been accepted to Winterfair in Columbus, Ohio this year!!!
My shibori is primarily arashi which is named for thunder or woven shibori in which supplementary threads are woven into the cloth and pulled to create patterns while dyeing. I use silk for arashi shibori and bamboo, hemp and cotton for my woven shibori.
