early to mid twentieth century
25 1/2" x 13", 63.5 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 two roundels each of which contains two types of flowers, one is cherry blossom while the other might be a chrysanthemum. The background is a network of irregularly-spaced, intersecting curved lines.

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

Wonderful to look at!
