A Length of Chidori Shibori: Lightweight Cotton

$85.00 USD
mid twentieth century
82" x 14", 208.25 cm x 35 cm

This is a very long, generously portioned length of nui shibori, or shibori that has been shape resist dyed using horizontal rows of stitching.  

This kind of striped, stitched shibori is sometimes referred to as chidori shibori, possibly because the variegated lines appear to be the tracks left on wet sand by the plover, or chidori.

This length is taken from a yukata or an unlined summer kimono; as such, creases and some very slight, overall fading from wear can still be seen on this length. The cotton is machine loomed and there is a crease that runs down the center of the cloth.

A lovely piece of handsome, hand made shibori.
