A Length of Chidori Shibori: Stitched Parallel Lines

$35.00 USD

mid twentieth century
55" x 13 1/2", 140 cm x 34.25 cm

This is a 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 there are ingrained creases still seen on this length. There is one very small stain the size of a pinhead, not noticeable at all.

A lovely piece of handsome, hand made shibori.
