Indigo Dyed Shibori Denim: Naturally Unique

It’s one of a kind – when you make something from Japanese indigo dyed shibori denim. Indigo is a natural dye that has been used since ancient times. The vibrant color creates fascinating patterns on the shibori denim. Shibori is not just tie dye, but a broader term for resist dyeing techniques which originated from Japan.

Tie Dye Jeans Outfit

Outfits with indigo dyed shibori denim feel instantly unique. This is because even with the same cut and design, the manually dyed patterns will never look the same.

Style your shibori denim with some whites for a fresh look. And then set the tone with a statement accessory like a handbag or a hat. For a more polished office look, wear heeled shoes under the cropped pants to make your legs look longer.
