Shibori Kimono - Well Crib Motif

180.00

This is a striking indigo dyed cotton shibori yukata, or tie dye cotton summer kimono.

The shibori technique that is demonstrated here is Ori-nui shibori. Here the cloth is pinched with fingers along the lines of the design marked on the cloth. A single row of running stitches is made close to the edge of the fold, which is pinched as the stitching progresses. When all the stitching is completed, the threads are drawn up tight and knotted and the cloth is dyed in indigo. The resulting pattern is a dramatic all-over print of a traditional Japanese pattern known as well-crib, or well cover.

The kimono has a wonderful design, is in very good condition, and is suitable for display or personal use.
