This is a length of indigo dyed coton shibori which shows a marvelous, lyrical, boldy graphic design of a swirling wave pattern which is set against a background of miura shibori.

This length of shibori dyed cotton was taken from a yukata, an unlined summer kimono, and because this cloth was once part of a garment, it shows ingrained creases from wear.

From a distance the background of the visually beautiful  machine loomed, lightweight cotton cloth appears to have a slightly mottled, medium-toned color, but upon closer inspection the fine pattern of spots can be seen.

This is a lovely length of traditional shibori dyed cotton with a very attractive, cooling, watery design.
