I've done tie-dye but never Shibori - this was easy to understand with great pictures to illustrate. Perfect for beginners or folks with a little experience. Well written and interesting.

This book shows lots of techniques with step by step photos. I think the directions are well written and easy to follow. A good book for beginners especially.

Mandy Southan's book on Shibori Designs and Techniques is a good introduction to shibori. I have been a dyer for twenty years and find this book is a good source of inspiration with great photos and instructions. This is a nice addition to an experienced dyer's library and perfect for a beginner. As always the book arrived quickly. Thanks Dharma after twenty years of buying from you I look forward to many more.

There are techniques in here from the quick and simple to some quite laborious but all are fantastic. When I brought in some things that I did out of this book two more people in my dying class(of about 12) bought it. There is something in here for everyone.
