Did you know?

The pattern of this jacket was created using a hand tie-dyeing method called shibori.


The tie-dyeing technique called shibori seen in this jacket not only dyes a garment but also makes its surface puckered, adding both visual and tactile interest. Called a haori, this type of jacket is a formal one worn over a kimono. The flowers in the design may be chrysanthemums.
