$30.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
27" x 13", 68.5 cm x 33 cm

This is a length of indigo dyed cotton shibori that was produced in Arimatsu, one of the towns in Aichi prefecture that was a leading producer and innovator in the production of shibori. 

The pattern shows a design of oval-shaped spirals in ordered, misaligned ascension in a design that suggestions cloud or vapor.

The shibori is dyed onto a length of commercially loomed, fairly lightweight cotton and is in good, used condition.

Wonderful to look at!
