Woman's jacket (haori) resist dyed on grey horizontally striped silk material (linzu). The particular shibori method used to dye this jacket is called 'willow pattern'. It involves pleating the cloth and binding it on to a flexible core before dyeing. See Shibori: The Inventive Art of Japanese Shaped Resist Dyeing Wada, Rice, Barton p112 pl. 316. There are two interesting haori-himo in which 3 separate braids join up as one, in blue, white and black. Fully lined in cream self-patterned silk.
