Beautiful Silk Kimono Jacket with Shibori 'Feathers'
A beautiful and unique handmade circa 1970s Japanese fine silk Kimono jacket. It's made from pure silk and has a wholly hand-tied shibori batik finish to the outer (each little 'dot' has been tied by hand prior to dyeing). The jacket is fully lined. Due to the intricate nature, shibori is one of the most expensive and labour intensive ways of dying fabric. A valuable and unique example of Japanese textile art.
