"Sunny Plums" Woman's Shibori Haori

A lovely light yellow-cream background with bursts of color from the scattered ume (plum) blossoms in bright yellow and orange. Some light green accents as well.

Note that there is a 2" tuck at each shoulder which can be let out if needed. These tucks are the traditional way to alter a kimono for a smaller frame. The jacket has a puckered texture all over, with some variation in size and placement of the puckers to showcase the florals.

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.
