"Shibori Purple" Sleeve Set Pair

A set of two sleeves from different vintage haori jackets.

Each has a shibori design in shades of purple.

Length of each sleeve will vary from 18-20 inches but you'll double that if you open it up at the seams. Each is lined (bonus fabric!).

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.
