Vintage Kimono in Bingo-Kasuri indigo cotton.
Kasuri is a fabric that has been woven with fibres dyed specifically to create a blurred appearance to the pattern. (Also known as Ikat). The fibres used here have been dyed by natural indigo dye.
Bingo-Kasuri is one of the three best traditional Japanese kasuri cloths, its origin beginning over 100 years ago. Now only two companies stick to the traditional dyeing and weaving methods. These methods produce irregularities which help to hold air within the cloth. This gives the cloth a cool handle in summer and warm in winter.
Easily washable, fabric will become softer with age.
Lined across the top of the back only.
