Tie- Dyed Kimono

Japanese tie dyed kimono. Applying shibori and tie-dying techniques to informal cotton kimonos, or “yukata”, originated in Owari prefecture in the late 17th century and they have since endured as summer garments. Simple repeating pattern across white background in indigo-blue and pink. Circular, swirling baseball like, motif with the smaller number of pink circles having a design picked out in small knotted areas, making a spiral design like a starfish in the middle. Longer sleeves indicate that it is for a woman and probably informal wear. Cotton and lighter fabrics have become more popular for use as the modern kimono.
