Pipe wrapping is a really fun way of doing shibori.  You can do it very nice and neat, and you can also do it very wild and free!  I am doing the later today in this video.  I like the organic shapes it make when the fabric naturally starts to pleat and twist when doing this technique.  

Here's the pipe ready to go into the vat.
