"Very Berry" Haori Tapestry

Beautiful ombre dyed background - dark berry color fading to a soft pink-cream. Subtle, textured waves in the silk jacquard.

The design of three leaves and three berries was created with the shibori technique - see below.

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.

We create these tapestries by salvaging the back portion of a haori jacket when other sections of the garment are beyond repair or rescue. We keep the processing simple, retaining the original lining and stitching (usually hand done) and simply finishing off the upper edge to allow a display rod (up to 1.5" diameter) to be inserted across the top.

Click the option above to purchase one of our display rods (as shown in the photo) at a discount.
