potd - Sekka Shibori

Sekka  (snow flower) shibori  is made by folding the fabric and clamping between boards (itajime) before dyeing. It's done on a quite open weave white cotton fabric and was traditionally used for nappies and some  simple clothing. We just got in this beautiful full roll. I spend my days with indigo fabrics but rarely as vibrant as this...
