Imagine handwoven garments and accessories that flatter every body shape and size and change color as you move. Imagine cloth where the woven pattern is just a starting point for a subtle interplay of texture, light, and shadow. Imagine great looking handwoven garments and scarves that can travel with you anywhere and never wrinkle! The secret is woven shibori, cloth that collapses or crimps after weaving. In this video, Dianne Totten teaches how to create her version of woven shibori, called “crimp cloth,” which uses heat-reactive fibers to create flexibility and visual excitement.
