Adventure is exhausting, so chill out and make your own Shibori-dyed Hammock to nap in.
ABOUT ESCAPE COLLECTIVE
Escape Collective is a team of designers, artists, engineers, builders, and sewers. Friends before business partners, their mission is to provide creative solutions for your wildest dreams, always driven by curiosity and adventure.
Shibori dying is a Japanese dying technique using binding, folding, twisting, or compressing methods with fabric. Dying techniques of the workshop are taught by Escape Collective members Kara Jean and Andy Carlson. We’ll go over three basic methods.
Itajime: A shape-resist technique that creates a simple, clean, grid pattern.
Kumo: A pleat and binding technique that creates a stunning spider-like circle effect.
Kanoko: A technique similar to western tye-dye, where we twisted the hammocks to create a natural running-water looking effect.
