Don’t make the mistake of calling it tie-dye — today’s board is inspired by the much more glamorous and way more hip version of everyone’s favorite summer camp activity. Made by twisting, folding and binding fabric, then dying it with natural dye (in this case, gorgeous indigo), the result is a rich pattern that looks great just about everywhere. On the table, on your furniture or in the form of a breezy summer dress,  it’s a fool-proof way to add natural texture to your home or wardrobe… and when the hand-dying process is half the fun, there’s no reason not to make an event of it. So what do you think? Is Shibori perfectly on-trend, or just as much of a “don’t” as rainbow tie-dye?

    I love the shibori trend! The blue and white color scheme is perfect for summer. I think I need to make room in my closet for the Madewell sundress.

    I would happily get on board with this trend. That Madewell dress is gorgeous and I love the table runner too.

    Love the Indigo Shibori trend! Though I also love tie die so what does that say about me? I have a cream linen slip covered couch and I tell you I’m seriously considering dip dying it a bright indigo blue. Now I just have to get my boyfriend on board….
