"Ikat Abstract" Woman's Dochugi

This dochugi jacket features a light brown background with an abstract design in olive green, red, and yellow.

Funky white lacey collar can be removed.

Ikat (sometimes called kasuri on cotton or meisen silk) is the textile process where the threads are dyed before being woven such that the patterning emerges on the loom. Small variations in the thread dying process create "fuzzy" edges to the patterns - this fabric is a "single ikat", since only the warp threads were dyed this way so the "fuzziness" only goes in one direction.

This is a dochugi style jacket, which crosses over in the kimono style (unlike the haori style which hangs open in the front). But instead of needing an obi it closes with inner and outer ties, which can be tied loosely to allow for a more generous fit. Where haori are best for up to a size 12, dochugi can fit up to a size 18+.
