A Group of Shibori Collar Pieces: Four Techniques
ca. mid twentieth century
average size of each: 52" x 7", 132 cm x 18 cm
Shown here are four, 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 and the average size is 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: tatsumaki arashi shibori (grey ground), chidori shibori, arashi shibori and yanagi shibori.
A wonderful sampler and one that can be easily applied to any fashion or art endeavor.
