Batik, shibori, and painting on cloth, are the techniques used. The shibori and batik techniques both share the practice of blocking the cloth (with wax or by tying, folding or stitching) in order to create patterns. I like the repeated process. The scent from the warm wax, they dyeing and the boiling of the cloth, over and over again until the final result is reached.
