Shibori a traditional Japanese resist-dyeing technique that has been around longer than any other fabric dyeing method. The pattern is made by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, compressing, dyeing, and then releasing the binding pressure to reveal the pattern. Commonly mistaken for tie-dye in the West, the original Shibori techniques were ancestral, handed down exclusively within Japanese artisan families.
Pattern: Chuyazakura. This pattern was used as the signature flower pattern during any season. The haori has one layer of silk shibori, like a kimono, and is lined with another layer of gorgeous patterned silk.
Condition: Excellent vintage. Haori (short kimono) is pre-owned. Some slight discoloration and foxing inherent with silk and age.
