Dark Indigo Classic Shibori Shirt dyed in natural fermented Indigo pots. Each pot in buried in the ground leaving only the opening visible. Because the opening of each pot is not very big, each piece has to be dyed manually one at a time. Which makes each piece different.
For the Shibori pattern the white fabric was machine stitched one line at a time before it could be dyed in Indigo. After dyeing and washing, a group of ladies joined together to take out the thread. With precision so the fabric would not get spoiled in the process.
A truly hand-made shirt!
