The word Shibori comes from the verb root shiboru, "to wring, squeeze, press." Cloth shaped by these methods is secured in a number of ways, such as binding and knotting.Shibori was originally an art of the poor. In feudal Japan, many people could not afford to buy expensive fabrics like cotton or silk, so clothes were often made of cheap fabrics. People could not afford to replace clothes regularly either, so they would repair and re dye them, and the art of Shibori evolved as a means of making old clothes look new.
