What is a resist dye?

“Resist dyeing is a term for a number of traditional methods of dyeing textiles with patterns. Methods are used to “resist” or prevent the dye from reaching all the cloth, thereby creating a pattern and ground. The best-known varieties today include tie-dye and batik.” This resist dyeing is also known as “shibori”.

The organic pattern in this beautiful piece of clothing can not be duplicated.

I consider my tunics to be works of wearable art and as such, that is how I create them

Hand dyed items, such as this tunic take much time and effort. Dye baths are prepared separately and each dye requires a minimum of one hour

This Myrobalan, Queen Anne’s Lace, Logwood naturally dyed cotton tunic was dyed in individual dye baths. Prior to dyeing, I stitched the shibori design through the two layers of the tunic, so that the front and back are identical. After dyeing, I did eco printing separately, on both sides.
