Large silk scarf with a shibori dyed pattern by Sydney based artist Barbara Rogers.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Barbara Rogers is a textile designer and artist who specialises in exclusive fabrics for fashion and interiors. She has gained international acclaim for her work which incorporates innovative shibori techniques together with more traditional methods.
Rogers now works primarily in shibori, an ancient Japanese resist dye technique. There are infinite ways one can bind, stitch, fold or compress cloth for shibori, each method creates unique patterning effects to work in harmony with the type of cloth used. Combining carved-board, clamped-resist with traditional arashi shibori, Rogers discharges dyes from the fabrics, then overdyes them in other colours to produce highly complex textile finishes.
