Shibori Juban Silk
A bolt of shibori dyed juban undergarment silk - 34.5cm x 8.5m. Viibrant vermillion on white figured rinzu silk. Unfortunately in recent decades kimono undergarments have become very pastel and dull! Back when kimonos were everyday wear undergarments were often made from a vibrant patchwork of re-used fabrics or, if you had a bit more money, bright and bold shibori-dyed silks like this. Lovely soft drape. I'm a bit concerned about the colourfastness. It's not losing any colour immediately but still should be handled with care. Mid 20th century.
