A Length of Pleated Shibori: Blue Stripes on White Ground

$65.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
48" x 13", 122 cm x 33 cm

What a lovely length of hand made, indigo dyed cotton shibori in a simple, beautiful pattern.

This piece, undoubtedly from Narumi/Arimatsu, is of a type that was pleated and tied before it was dyed: the "broken" vertically dyed lines are due to the pleated fabric having been bound by string before being vat dyed.

In good, bright condition and on good quality cotton, this length shows some ingrained creases from wear--and it is really handsome length of hand dyed shibori.
