"Jeweltone Shibori" Woman's Haori

A beautiful mix of soft jeweltones - blue, green and purple - mottled beneath a tight grid of diamond shaped florals all created with the shibori (Japanese tie-dye) technique.

A small blemish on the front top edge of a sleeve, see photo.

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.
