Alizarin Red Pure Mul Cotton Shibori Saree
Fabric: Pure Mul Cotton
Shibori is considered to be one of the oldest indigo dye techniques in Japan. Originating in China, shibori dyeing really gained mainstream traction in Japan during the Edo Period from the 17th-19th centuries, as people from the lower social classes needed an alternative to the silk that they were banned from wearing. Although that that doesn’t sound too old (relatively speaking!) in reality, shibori’s origins go way beyond the 1600s.
