Technique: double-pleating

Step One: pleat by stitching with thread and pulling up, wrap around a flexible core and wrap with thread to hold, use strips of fabric wrapped around as resists; dye with indigo, remove from core

Step 2: wrap around core with the other side down, wrap with thread to hold, wrap with strips of fabric to act as sectional resists; dye with indigo, remove from core, remove all pleating and tying thread
