Arashi shibori is a Japanese technique with multiple variations. The one we use for this design is also called “pole wrap shibori”, since it consists of wrapping the fabric around a tube to create a motif that recalls the lightning of thunderstorms – this is the meaning of the word “arashi” in Japanese.
Indigo is a dye that requires a different process from all others, since it is not soluble in water; therefore, in order to dye a fabric, certain conditions have to be created involving temperature, alkalinity, and a total lack of oxygen in the dye bath.
