Think of shibori—an ancient form of wrapping, binding, and hand-dyeing fabric—as tie-dye for grown-ups. Big-deal designers like Stella McCartney, Band of Outsiders, and Michael Kors have recently sent shibori-inspired patterns down their catwalks, and high-street stores like Madewell, Anthropologie, and Free People are all offering up intricately patterned, indigo hued pieces too. Shibori is definitely having a moment.

"Shibori gives fabric a vibrant liveliness that other prints can’t offer," explains Kalen Kaminski, who along with pal Astrid Chastka, founded shibori-based clothing label Upstate four years ago. "There are always inconsistencies with shibori that must be embraced."
