I was never a fan of the tie-dye craze that swept the 90s. I remember one summer at girl scout camp being forced, as I recall, against my will to not only partake in the tie-dying process, but to then wear my psychedelic masterpiece like a badge of honor. I resisted at every turn. And as much as I hated the tie-dye-mania then, I have to admit: I am finally coming around to it– all thanks to Shibori.

Seriously, give me all of the shibori things.
If you aren’t sure what shibori is, no worries. “Shibori” is an ancient Japanese tie-dyeing technique that consists of intricate folds and bindings before its dyed. And let me just tell you, it’s having a moment right now.
So, naturally, when our team was brainstorming new art to add to the WallsNeedLove featured art I became a champion for one thing and one thing only. Shibori.
It’s the perfect addition to add to your summer decor rotation. Plus, there are so many beautiful variations in designs that it adds a bit uniqueness to the space. You can view the full collection here.
Here are a few of my favorites. I’m telling you, it’s hard to pick just one. My home may be getting a few new additions.
Which ones are your favorites?
