The threads to be dyed are sectioned and securely tied, using a special tape to mark areas of resist. The ink does not pass through and dye the areas that have been taped and will remain white, becoming the distinct pattern of the "kasuri." In the most extravagant cases, there can be up to five- or six-thousand tied sections required to create a patterned design.
