"Shibori Gussets" Bundle

A set of gusset pieces from seven different vintage haori jackets.

Gussets are the long and narrow slices of fabric found at the side seams of traditional vintage haori jackets.
Great for accent work, small quilts, collages, and any project that calls for a variety of vintage kimono fabrics.

These all have a shibori design in bold, rich colors of purple, orange, and yellow. Each piece is 3-4" in width and 24-25" in length.

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.
