Shibori Samples--Ori Nui

The fabric is pleated for Ori Nui and is stitched with a running stitch close to the fold.

The fabric is gathered tightly, the pleats between the lines of stitching arranged, the fabric is moistened to swell it, then it is tightened again and tied.  The Ori Nui is soaked to prepare if for dyeing.

Ori Nui makes a pattern that resembles rows of teeth--roots and all!  The Ori Nui sample was dyed with pre-reduced indigo.
