“Mardley-zome”is a dyeing technique in which varied patterns are created through stirring colored pastes.
The patterns, such as kuzaku (peacocks), kanze-mizu (water waves), yagasuri (arrowheads), shibori (tie-dye), tachidaki (waterfall), kaigara (shells), are created during the procedure by the placement of the sashiiro-nori and by the method of stirring.
