A Length of Shibori Dyed Cotton: Flower Trail

$35.00 USD

mid twentieth century
57" x 13", 144.75 cm x 33 cm

This is a length of lightweight, commercially loomed cotton that has been dyed in the shibori or tie dye method. It was taken from a yukata, an unlined, casual summer kimono.

The pattern on the cotton is simple and with a large repeat: it shows a kind of trailing vine of chrysanthemums that wends its way up the center of the cloth. 

The background is a puckered field of rich blue miura shibori.

There are ingrained creases from its former life as a garment and the length is versatile in its applications: it can be admired as art, used as a fashion or home accessory, studied for its technique or design--or in any number of ways that inspiration will govern.
