Mandala Azul - Maki-Age Challenge
Maki-Age shibori piece for Flickr Maki-Age Shibori Challenge. Procion dye on cotton cloth.
The cloth was stitched using one or two rows of straight stitch (ori-nui). White-resisted areas were tied and wrapped, then the piece was dyed light blue. The light blue areas were then tied and wrapped and the piece was dyed dark blue. Origiinal design inspired by an islamic tile motif of interlocking squares that form an 8-pointed star.
