The Shibori Décor Trend Is Everywhere—Here's How to Do It

Sophie Miura

Home décor trends come and go, but shibori accessories never seem to fade out of style. "I think people are drawn to this hand done, painterly process in the digital world," explains Rebecca Atwood, a designer and artist who employs the dyeing process when making throw pillows and napkins for her label. "There's something magical about the process, and it comes through in the final design. It's also pretty classic."

Shibori is a resist dyeing technique that originated in eighth-century Japan. While you can find shibori décor at big retailers like Anthropologie and Target, it's also incredibly easy to do at home. In Atwood's book, Living with Pattern, she offers a step-by-step guide to master the DIY project at home, including how to fold the fabric, mix the dye, and experiment with unique patterns. Here's exactly how it's done.
