A Length of Indigo Dyed Cotton Shibori: Miura and Roundels

$45.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
54 1/4" x 13", 137.5 cm x 33 cm

This is a length of indigo dyed cotton shibori that was taken from a yukata or an unlined, casual kimono usually worn in summer.

The pattern is an all over field of miura shibori which is punctuated by large-scale roundels inside of which is a stylized flower. The background relies on a tied technique while the images utilized a stitched technique.

There is a subtle change in indigo tone within the length and there are ingrained creased from the life this length had in service of a yukata.

A charming, complex yet bold pattern.
