SHADES OF BLUE | the style files

For me inspiration comes in all shapes and forms and today I'm loving these deep and moody shades of blue.

These two are shibori dyed.  The one shown here, above and below, is a subtle and complex pattern of stacked diamonds.  It seems that the paler, more “spider web” diamonds were tied and then bound with string while the darker diamonds were tied and not bound.  Binding and not binding give two different effects which was used to great artistic advantage here.
