Wearable Silk Accessories

Erin Bassett in process of making her one-of-a-kind silk shibori creations

The technique I use to create these beautiful, one-of-a-kind works of art is called Shibori. Shibori is an ancient Japanese technique dating back to the 8th century and is more commonly known as tie-dye. I use silk for its sculptural characteristics. Shibori is a time- and labor-intensive process. First, I cut, iron, and hem the edges of the silk. Then, I wrap the silk around metal and glass objects and secure them using rubber bands by hand. I allow the fabric to “speak to me” on where I place the objects. Heat is applied by boiling the bound silk. Boiling different colors of silk together creates astonishing color combinations.  After the silk is completely dry, at least 24 hours, the rubber bands are removed and the objects are taken out. The result is beautifully textured silk fabric that is light and airy yet sculptural and dimensional.
