Shibori's Pepa and Karen
Pepa & Karen from Shibori

The Place of Zen is the brand new collection brought to you by the fabulous duo, Pepa Martin & Karen Davis from Shibori.

What exactly is Shibori?

Shibori is a Japanese resist dyeing technique dating back to approx 8th century. Using mainly indigo dye and natural fabrics, different resist techniques were used to create patterns. This could include folding, stitching, twisting, tying, crumpling, plaiting etc. There are numerous outcomes, which make this technique so special as every piece dyed is unique.

The Collection

Shibori and Materialised transport you to The Place of Zen, a poetic collection of prints invoking creativity, nature’s architecture and sculptural form. This collection is made up of 9 designs and 1 mural, available in multiple colourways on any of our printable substrates. From every mark of the dye and every texture made from the cloth, we have captured every organic detail, bringing traditional textiles into the world of digital printing.

We are ecstatic to be collaborating with such a creative and passionate pair.
