shibori collezione

It is well-known that the ancient dye technique of Shibori is making a monumental comeback in the modern home. With graceful and delicate hues, Shibori patterns have adorned many surfaces, from wallpaper to cushions.
The resist dye technique, perfected in Shibori’s Sydney studio, has been used successfully across a range of projects from commercial to fashion. Tappeti brings the highly artisanal process to the realm of commercial and residential interior design by offering a range of captivating rugs that are exclusive to this partnership between Tappeti and Shibori

Artisan-crafted – from Sydney to New Delhi
Pepa Martin and Karen Davis, founders of Shibori, played a major role in revitalising the ancient technique of Shibori and bring a distinctive take to the craft from the dye-pots of their Sydney studio.

“When it came to adding rugs to our collection it was a no brainer that we went with Tappeti as their existing collections are of such high quality and strong design. We love that the company and product that has the capacity to supply existing stock as well as offering a full customized approach”
– Pepa and Karen (Shibori)

Each design for the collection was hand dyed by Shibori and interpreted by Tappeti’s in-house textile designers into arrangements of colour and texture, true to the original.
The intricate designs were then passed onto Tappeti’s artisan craftsmen, and each creation was brought to life using the age-old, hand processes of rug making.
