Shibori is a traditional Japanese tie-dying art that dates back over 500 years to the beginning of the Edo period. The word Shibori comes from the verb root shiboru, meaning “to wring, squeeze, press.” The Shibori technique is given a three-dimensional form by folding, crumpling, stitching, plaiting, or plucking and twisting the cloth surface into three-dimensional shapes before compressing them to dye.

Arimatsu, located in Nagoya in Tokaido region between Tokyo and Osaka, is one of the most famous locations for Shibori in Japan. This “Shibori town” was founded by the craftman, Shokuro Takeda in 1608 when Ieyasu Tokugawa opened the shogunate government in the Edo period. When Arimatsu was founded, the feudal lords of Japan were required to travel to Tokyo (then known as Edo) each year through the Tokaido to swear their allegiance to the Shogun. Along the route, many travelers bought souvenirs such as shibori towels and shibori yukatas (summer kimono). Since then, this place became known for their specialty products in Japan
