An incredible 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 'lighting bolt' details throughout. A favourite piece! 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.
