Create: Shibori

My sister Jacky is a big fan of shibori and I can definitely see the I thought she (and others) might be interested in the gorgeous work of Karen Davis and Pepa Martin of design studio Shibori. The beautiful, subtle blue and white effects of the traditional shibori style are given a contemporary twist by this fab duo.  Their site gives a peek at everything from the shibori process through to projects and collaborations.  They're even producing a book titled 'Shibori in the 21st Century' which is due to be released in October. I'll be keeping an eye out for that one.

Here's some of Shibori's work:

The shibori process applied to leather:

These shibori curtains at the Beresford Hotel, Surry Hills are pretty amazing:

They've even created shibori walls! Obviously the possibilities are endless for this talented pair:
