Shibori with Nomad Tribe Wynwood
Last week I had the extreme pleasure of venturing out to Wynwood (yup, braving Zika) to take a shibori class at a local fair trade boutique, Nomad Tribe.
What is shibori, you ask? It's a Japanese indigo-dying technique that involves using compression to create patterns in different types of fabric. There's no wrong way to design, tie and/or clip the fabric, and it turns up some really amazing designs like the ones my fellow fashion bloggers and I ended up getting. Each pattern was a complete surprise, and it was fun seeing what the other bloggers came up with!
We all had smurf-blue hands by the time we were done, and I had extreme satisfaction having created something with my own hands.
Want to try shibori? There will be an official class held this month at Nomad Tribe on August 25, 6:30 p.m. Head over to eventbrite to sign up!
