DIGITAL3D shibori

Technique developed by Kiichi Matsuoka who is traditional craftsman of Kyo-Kanoko Shibori. Using a mold made with a digital 3D printer, we will perform “sheet-squeezing” which is one of the techniques of Kyo-Kanoko Shibori. The molds are made with 3D printers, but all processes are manual as well as traditional “sheet-squeezing,” its handmade flavors are attractive. In addition, since the part sandwiched between the molds becomes uneven, a soft texture that was not present in the conventional plunging diaphragm has been added.
