A Length of Kumo Shibori: Spiderweb Pattern
mid twentieth century
58" x 13 1/2", 147.25 cm x 34.25 cm
This is a length of indigo dyed cotton kumo shibori or shibori that has been shape resist dyed in the tie dye method, the result being this crammed field of kumo or spiderwebs.
This length is taken from a yukata or an unlined summer kimono; as such there are ingrained creases and some light wear to the length. Additionally, although this cotton is most likely not hand woven it still retains a lovely texture.
Good, white cotton and dark rich indigo are a great combination as can be seen in this length of handsome, hand made shibori.
