Shibori inspired clothing

30 July 2006

This is sort of shibori top (no dyeing) available at http://www.shibori.org/, click on GALLERY SHOP, then POCKETEE. Here the emphasis is on texture, no dyeing and polyester to make the pleats more robust. Issey Miyake’s PLEATS PLEASE falls into thiis catagory. So does Justine Limpus Parish.
I forgot to share the free patent for making shibori clothing like this. I learned that those little things that form when you do shibori are called SHIBO—who knew, I just said poof!

    I went to the web-site and gallery shop and tried the phone number and talked to someone who was not at all connected with the web-site and shibori. Do you have any other sites where one can buy pocketees?

    and this is Yoshiko Wada’s contact info. I don’t know what more to tell you. I haven’t seen her personally for more than a year, but as far as I know this is still the correct contact info.
