A vintage circa 1970s Japanese fine silk Kimono robe. It has a wholly hand-tied shibori batik finish with 'folding fan' pattern and white printed accents. The Kimono is made from soft flowing damask silk and is fully lined. The silk lining has an orange toned colour gradient to the lower hem. Due to the intricate nature, shibori is one of the most expensive and labour intensive ways of dying fabric. A beautiful example of Japanese textile art.
