"Shibori Paulownia" Woman's Haori

A lovely jacket in shades of pink and red with a large paulownia and bamboo design. Accent colors of yellow, purple, and green marbled in. Kaneko shibori circles that vary in amount of white space. Pastel folding fan lining.

Haori do not cross over or tie with a sash, like a kimono does - they are meant to be worn open to reveal a bit of what is worn beneath.

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.
