"Flowing Waters" Woman's Shibori Haori

Majestic purples, rich rose, and white shibori dots create a series of streams that seem to flow diagonally across the jacket.

Look closely inside the bands to see small flowers that seem to bob along in the current.

Overall kaneko shibori dots fill in space between the bands.


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.
