"Autumn Collage" Woman's Shibori Haori

A fantastic jacket for Fall. Not only is the floral collage - plum blossoms? - done with thousands of shibori dots, but the background dyecraft is also amazing. The autumn palette is mixed in a way that balances the light and dark tones and creates a flow and movement that is so artistic!

Haori do not cross over or tie with a sash, like a kimono does - they are meant to be worn open to reveal a bit of what is worn beneath.

Shibori is "Japanese tie-dye", where an artisan stitches along a stenciled image on the fabric, pulling the threads tightly to create a resist. The fabric is then dyed and when the threads are released, the pattern is revealed. There are dozens of shibori techniques, with the most common these days called kaneko (referring to the spots on a fawn), where an often elaborate pattern is created by hundreds of tiny dots. Kyoto is famous for this kaneko style. Watch the video below to learn more.
