A Length of Old Blue on Blue Shibori: Miura on Hand Spun Cotton

$75.00 USD

late nineteenth, early twentieth century
28" x 13 1/4", 71 cm x 33.5 cm

This is a beautiful length of old indigo dyed shibori cloth: the cotton is hand woven from from hand spun yarns and has a marvelous, hand made texture. It is of good weight.

The shibori is a blue-on-blue field done in the miura technique. Miura shibori looks like a dappled field of uniform-sized splotches.

This length was taken from a garment and its rather strong bar of light-fading is consistent with this prior history of being a jacket or an under kimono.

A not-so-often seen length of indigo dyed cotton shibori of such good age this piece is wonderful for its expertly done pattern and for its wonderful old hand woven cotton.
