A Length of Nui Shibori: Waves
ca. mid to late twentieth century
61 1/2" x 15", 156 cm x 38 cm
This lovely length of indigo dyed cotton shibori shows a kind of rising steam or vertically-oriented wave pattern which is rendered in the nui shibori or sewn shibori technique.
Having once been part of a yukata or unlined kimono, there are some embedded creases in the cloth which indicate marks from its former life as a garment.
A strikingly graphic length of shibori cotton.
