A Length of Dark Toned Shibori: Morning Glories

$45.00 USD
early to mid twentieth century
60" x 13 1/2", 152.5 cm x 34 cm

This is a beautiful, shibori dyed cotton length that was taken from a yukata--a yukata is an unlined cotton kimono that is often worn in summer time.

This length shows a lovely and boldly graphic, large repeat pattern of nicely depicted, stylized morning glories, a favorite Japanese flower that was wildly hybridized in the 19th century.

The cotton is in good, used condition with ingrained creases from its former life as a yukata. The cotton is machine loomed and the deep tone of indigo color is more than likely a synthetic dye which was used almost universally for this type of cloth at this time in Japan.

This is an especially lovely, bold pattern.
