Description
 
"Connect The Dots" Woman's Kimono

A bit of whimsy....red and green circles outlined in black, lined up in a grid formation against the light pink silk.

This is a double ikat, where the fuzziness extend in both directions because both the warp and the weft threads were dyed prior to weaving.

A very light spot on one front sleeve, see photo.

Ikat (also called kasuri) is a centuries-old method of weaving where the threads are dyed before being woven, so that the design appears on the loom. Ikat is a very labor-intensive textile art form, still very much revered in Japan and elsewhere. See the amazing process in the video below.
