In Japanese, the word "shibari" means "to bind". The contemporary meaning of the word describes an artistic form of bondage.
Originating from the ancient martial art Hojojutsu and the artist, Shunga, torture of Seiu Ito, Shibari was popularized in Japanese erotic magazines in the 1950s. Nowadays, it is a form of aesthetic bondage practiced all over the world, also called Kinbaku.
Traditionally, lengths of natural fibre rope of 5, 6 or 8 mm in diameter are used. The geometric patterns made with the rope contrast beautifully with the natural curves of the body.
The ligature experience is always a collaboration between the "rigger" and the model, the result of which can explore notions of visual beauty, sexuality, power exchange, relaxation and challenges of the body.
