Miki – silk Shibori Haori in burgundy red
Stunning vintage Shibori Haori, handsewn of a burgundy red silk with a subtle woven pattern. This Haori (Kimono jacket) is handmade in Japan and features a wonderful wavy design. The short hand-woven silk Himo cords are included. The long silk Obijime cord will be available in my shop soon. This Kimono jacket is in very good condition and dates from around the 1980s.
The beautiful refined pattern of this silk Haori is made in the Shibori technique, a Japanese manual tie-dye technique which originated in the 8th century. Japanese Shibori artists use threads to meticulously tie many small dots into the fabric and then hand-dye the fabric. When the threads are removed, an uneven pattern appears. Making Shibori textiles is very time consuming and requires great skill and focus. The word Shibori comes from the Japanese verb shiboru meaning ‘to wring or squeeze’. There are countless ways to tie, sew, fold or twist fabric to make Shibori, each resulting in very different patterns. The structure of silk Shibori fabric feels very pleasant and soft.
