A Length of Fanciful Shibori Cotton: Stylized Umbrella Pattern
mid twentieth century
47" x 13", 119.5 cm x 33 cm
This wonderful length of cotton shibori shows a repeat pattern of what appears to be abstracted parasols--very lovely.
In dyeing this piece the cotton was very heartily shaped and the abundance of set-in wrinkles attests to this: this piece was more than likely not dyed using natural indigo.
Still, this is a really charming piece of cotton shibori.
