"Peony Garden" Woman's Haori

Delicate tropical colors suggest this was made for the summer season. A raspberry pink background with large peony blossoms outlined in white and shaded in greens and golds. Note the soft blue leaves!

The pattern seems to have been applied with the yuzen technique but the white tips of the puckers (and the puckering itself) suggests the shibori technique. To be honest, we're not sure how they did it. See videos below for more information on each of these techniques.

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.
