Rachel Switzer is the creative spirit behind the Etsy Shop, Cape Code Shibori. With needle and thread, she cleverly stitches her base cloths and dyes them in small batches to produce unique, artisan Shibori fabrics.
After dying, the stitches are removed to reveal amazing patterns. Many of her creations are in traditional indigo blues, but she also offers gorgeous greens and a whole rainbow of shades.
Emerging from such an intricate handwork process, Cape Cod Shibori fabrics are often one of a kind. Rachel offers coordinating Shibori Bundles, Scrap Packs and Layer Cakes for those who have trouble choosing - they're all so interesting!

Her base cloths include denim and linen, besides regular quilting cotton. These substrates would be lovely for home decor or apparel projects. Plus, she takes custom orders should you need something specific for a special make.
Between the fabrics themselves and these studio shots, I'd love to stop by and see Rachel at work. It's mind boggling the infinite ways artists find to birth beauty from fiber! I am honored to partner with Cape Cod Shibori this year and hope to, in time, welcome more handmade fabric artists as sponsors of Stitched in Color.
