Description "Shibori" cloth was made through a tie-dyeing process. It became particularly popular during the Edo period. Cloth would be tied tightly around small pebbles, creating white circular patterns. Note the small bundles the woman has already tied in preparation for dyeing. Examples of "shibori" clothes hang in the background.
