A Cotton Shibori Han Juban: Faded Indigo Dyed Half Under-Kimono

$95.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
27" x 46", 68.5 cm x 117 cm

This garment is hand stitched of indigo dyed cotton that has been dyed in the shibori method: the garment has been worn hard which accounts for the fairly well-faded quality of the shibori which was probably once strong in color but is now softly greyed in tone.

This is a han juban or a half under-kimono. The cotton is slightly clingy and the garment is entirely hand stitched. 

The collar shows "spiderweb" shibori and the body of the garment shows long, streaky shibori, quite beautiful.

The visual feeling is airy when looking at this garment and if one would wish to wear it it would probably need some hand alteration to tailor it to your body type.

A good looking garment that contains a good amount of nice, albeit faded, shibori.
