Indighosts

Shibori is a traditional Japanese technique of compression based resist dyeing. I've recently been creating some simple fold and clamp shibori patterns that are often symmetrical. The indigo disperses in such a way that leaves these ghostly little impressions on the denim, and I keep thinking I am seeing faces. The apparitions remind me of the faint and weathered impression of a face on the Shroud of Turin. Check these out.
