Welcome to Suzanne bates Textiles. Thank you so much for visiting my shop, featuring hand dyed shibori and one-of-a-kind hand woven scarves.
My scarf patterns are created using the Japanese Shibori shaped-resist process, batik, and block printing. This involves wrapped, folded, and tied, and in some cases, the creation of wood shapes which are clamped onto the fabric before it is immersed into the dye bath. The resulting soft diffused edges give the patterns a very natural organic repetition, something that can’t be duplicated with hard-edge screen printing or computer generated art. Please expect and celebrate the nuances these dyeing processes create.
Please contact me with any questions you may have. I would love to hear from you.
I welcome the opportunity for custom orders. Please convo me to discuss.
