Shown here are five, narrow lengths of indigo dyed cotton shibori, each piece of cloth being taken from the collar, or eri, section of a yukata, which is an unlined, cotton summer kimono.

Each of the pieces is of a different dimension; sizes are shown above: the selection represented here were all made in the early to mid twentieth century, and each shows some creases and fading from wear.

From left to right: kanoko shibori in the formation of lattice work, kanoko shibori, nui shibori in the tatewaku motif, tie dye in the arrow feather or yabane motif, tie dye in a grid pattern.

A wonderful sampler and one that can be easily applied to any fashion or art endeavor.  Ingrained creases from previous use, otherwise in good, clear condition.
