A Clamp Dyed Shibori Diaper: Deep Blue Color

$35.00 USD

late twentieth century
29" X 13", 73.5 cm X 33 cm

This lightweight cotton cloth measures, as shown, at 29" or 73.5 cm in length, when in reality as it is twice that since this is a length of cotton that has been stitched as a "tube," short end to short end.

It is a diaper and is dyed in the itajime shibori or clamp dyed method.  The cotton would have been folded in a series of triangular folds, then clamped, and then the edges would have been dyed.  The result is this richly dyed field of blue-on-white, six pointed "flowers" which are arranged in ordered repeat.

The diaper is finished with machine stitching, and seems to be in good condition; please note one tiny hole which is shown on the accompanying detail photographs.

A lovely one.
