"Butterflies on Blue" Woman's Kimono

This is a vintage Japanese casual woman's kimono.

Very dark indigo blue with colorful butterflies fluttering all around.

The design was created with the ikat weaving technique.

Nubby raw silk with a sheen. Designer's tag sewn into the lining seam.

Ikat (also called kasuri) is a centuries-old method of weaving where the threads are dyed before being woven, so that the design appears on the loom. Ikat is a very labor-intensive textile art form, still very much revered in Japan and elsewhere. See the amazing process in the video below.
