"Ikat Pinwheels" Woman's Michiyuki


What a fun yet elegant jacket! This michiyuki features a red checkerboard jacquard with large ikat woven black blossoms floating all around.

The centers of the florals look like pinwheels to us!

Square neckline, hidden pocket on the right side, and inner tie at the thigh to keep the jacket closed and squared up at the hem.

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.

Michiyuki were worn over the kimono (which showed at the neck) on chilly days. Michi meants "street" and yuki refers to "going out".

If you like this michiyuki but need more room, we can convert this to our Japanique Jacket style for $15 more. Just select the option above. Allow for an extra two days before we can ship.
