Asamai Shibori Noragi

450.00

This is a stunning and beautifully constructed long shibori work coat from the Tohoku region of Japan. 

This particular shibori style - crystal whites against deep botanical indigo - is known as Asamai shibori.  The design presented here suggests flower petals drifting amidst a stream. The petals of the flowers are made using a capping technique called boshi, while the undulating stream pattern is achieved through a kanokoshibori technique.

The cloth itself is both hand spun and hand woven, a supple and easy cotton. The exterior cloth has been dyed with a natural botanical indigo, while the interior is lined with a medium tone indigo cloth.

The garment it in excellent condition and seems to be almost unworn. An excellent collector's piece.

Early to Mid 20th Century
