A Length of Mid Century Shibori: Flow of Flowers

$25.00 USD

mid twentieth century
39" x 14 1/4", 99 cm x 36 cm

This is a length of lightweight, indigo dyed cotton shibori which was dyed to show an irregularly stacked column of flowers, two light-colored and one dark colored.

The machine loomed cotton still shows a good deal of the texture from being shaped before being dyed; the flowers are highlighted with red and yellow dye.

This is a panel taken from a yukata or an unlined, summer kimono so in addition to the creases from its shibori dyeing, it also shows ingrained creases from its former life as a garment.
