A 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 with Japanese bonsai pine details on the back and sleeves. The jacket is fully lined. Due to the intricate nature, shibori is one of the most expensive and labour intensive ways of dying fabric. Learn about Shibori here.
