Karen Davis is one of the directors of Shibori textiles a boutique textile agency renowned for pushing the boundaries of this ancient Japanese craft with modern applications and a relaxed Australia feel. By exploring and modernising old techniques on modern fabrics the design team injects a strong design element into their work making an old craft new again. Shibori fabrics, wallpapers and leathers have been used by Australia’s top designers and architects with their designs seen in venues all over the world. Pepa and Karen authored two books Shibori Recreated: shibori in the 21st century which documents the reinvention and recreation of the ancient Japanese art of shibori and Tie Dip Dye a beginner dyeing book targeted at a new generation of dyers who value subtle and modern designs. Tie Dip Dye has been published in over 6 langues With the flexibility of their trade, the pair has collaborated on some unique projects including; a full scale dip dyed hot air balloon, fabric inlayed surf boards made by McTavish and Sibella Court as well as a home wares range with Lee Mathews.
