A beautiful hand dyed vintage Japanese fine silk Kimono robe. It's made from pure silk and has an incredible all-over shibori batik finish. This robe would have taken approximately two months of work to complete! (the patterns and texture of the jacket are the results of meticulous handwork - each 'point' of the pattern has been tied off by hand before the fabric is dyed resulting in a textural organic finish). Due to the intricate nature, shibori is one of the most expensive and labour intensive ways of dying fabric. Learn about Shibori here. The Kimono is fully lined with silk.
