Nui shibori is a technique that uses a resist method.
Like Kanoko, which requires some twine or rubber band, Nui Shibori instead of using a rubber band to create a variation on the textile, basting stitches are used.
A simple running stitch is used on the cloth then pulled tight to gather the cloth before submerging in an indigo dye pot. Stitching affords flexibility and control to create designs of great variety, delicate or bold, simple or complex, pictorial or abstract. This technique allows for greater control of the pattern and greater variety of design, but it is much more time-consuming.
