All the samples above are variations of the tortoiseshell folding pattern. I experimented with using different tools to clap the folded fabric as well as different ways to place the clamps, and how many were used.

I didn’t expect them to all be so different, I’m really pleased with the results.

I also found some more tutorials online for techniques called Komasu and Kumo. I really liked both of these techniques, they turned out very similar to the pictures online. I hope in the future I can spend more time experimenting with both of them.

The last sample is a bound shibori technique. I would love to do a deeper dive into bond techniques but with time constraints I was only able to do this small experiment.
