Mameshibori Dot-Pattern Fundoshi, Part 1


I just ordered my first real mameshibori pattern fundoshi from Fundoshitaro's eBay shop! In celebration, I'd like to make a few posts that focus on this grid-pattern of small dots. In Japan, they are referred to as "beans." What we might call polka dots is called something very different in a culture that doesn't have polka. The most common color is navy blue, but mameshibori pattern can be in a variety of colors including red, gray, green, sky blue, or pink. I'm focusing on navy blue for these posts.
