The all-new high-rise Wunder Under Pant and Energy Bra from Lululemon now come in a stylish shibori print, which takes inspiration from an ancient Japanese dyeing technique.

Shibori is a manual resist dyeing technique that dates back to the 8th century in Japan, in which cloth is bound, folded, twisted, or compressed to create distinctive patterns by allowing the dyes to touch certain surfaces and not others.

The shibori-inspired activewear from Lululemon reflects the cues that have been taken from this Japanese dyeing technique with names like 'Shibori Emperor Blue Black.' The pants themselves are ideal for yoga, since the fabric used in the making of these leggings is Lycra, which is ideal for stretching, yet also retaining it shape.
