Description
 
"Daisy Ikat" Woman's Kimono

Very sweet, feminine colors and patterning.

Bunches of white daisies are scattered all about, with a bright peach in the background.

The florals were done with a double ikat, where both the warp and weft threads were dyed before weaving. But between the flowers you'll see little black crosses, but those little black lines were dyed onto the threads before weaving.

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.
