World Shibori Network

Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations

In November of 1992, the first International Shibori Symposium (ISS) was organized in the Arimatsu district of Nagoya, Japan. Over 1000 participants representing over 20 countries exchanged knowledge and inspiration about shibori. The overwhelming success of the symposium gave birth to an organization called the World Shibori Network, formed by global community of people committed to support, sustain and promote Shibori traditions.

We continue the tradition of the International Shibori Symposium till date. The ISS is held every few years and is a celebration of shibori’s dynamic connections across the world – a timeless bridge of cultures, languages and nature.
