Our indigo shibori masks are truly one-of-a-kind.
Shibori is an ancient Japanese bind-and-resist dye technique. The word roughly translates to "wring, squeeze, press." The fabric is folded and bound between boards, clamps, and string to create geometric and organic dye patterns. We used Itajime, Kumo, and Arashi Shibori methods for these limited-run masks.
Indigo is the dye traditionally used for the art of shibori, which is collected from the leaves of the Indigo plant and produces deep shades of blue. The colors in these masks will shift and fade over time, much like your favorite denim jacket.
Due to the nature of shibori, no two masks are exactly alike. Each have their own characteristics and are beautiful in their own right. Our indigo shibori masks are made with two layers of 100% cotton. The outer layer is dyed with shibori indigo and the inside of the mask is white.
These masks are machine-washable and reusable. We recommend washing in cool water to preserve the rich shades of blue for as long as possible. Our indigo shibori masks include around-the-head elastic in forest green, but you can easily turn these into ear-loop masks. Please wear your mask responsibly and stay up to date on CDC recommendations for cloth face coverings.
