Shibori Recreated book


Product Description

Shibori Recreated looks at the modern place of the craft and its use in art, design and fashion. Through interviews with designers and artists who are recreating and reinventing the ancient Japanese art of shibori in different ways, its adaptability and contemporary relevance will be understood, and the fine line between tradition and modernity appreciated.

While the term ‘modern shibori’ is much a contradiction in itself, this book hopes to show you how a respect for a unique and amazing traditional craft can allow it to live on in a fast-paced, technologically advanced modern world. Modern shibori exists all over the world in wonderfully unique forms that designers and craftspeople have developed to suit their own art.

This book is a platform to promote modern shibori on a world stage and its place in design today.

Shibori contains interviews and a photographic journal of diverse artisans, designers, fashion identities and textile collectors and showcases the beauty of this unique craft and the journey the artist has taken with a simple piece of cloth. The book explores the various uses of the ancient craft and the versatility of fabric manipulation in the digital age. The ancient craft has not been lost, replaced or corrupted- but reinvented and recreated to ensure its relevance and survival in the 21st Century.
