According to "Woven Shibori" by Catharine Ellis woven shibori is a weaving and dying resist technique. You place a resist pattern thread at regular intervals on a ground cloth (usually plain weave). After the cloth is taken off the loom, resist threads are pulled, dye is applied. After after cloth is dry, the resist threads are removed and thrown away. Your cloth is basically what you wove as your ground cloth but the pattern is what you resist/dye accomplished.
