"Midnight River" Woman's Haori

Swirling kaneko shibori in cream, pink, blue, and green against a black background. Resembling flowing water, the design flows down the jacket. Also could be beach waves or even appears a bit like the Milky Way. Whatever you see, it makes for quite the stunning piece to wear or display!

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.
