"Fishnet" Woman's Shibori Michiyuki

Creative design of, we think, segments of a fishing net stretching across the front and back - all done with thousands of small kaneko shibori dots, each tipped with a dark red. The background is a light yellow-orange but the result is an overall deep, rich orange color. As a bonus for shibori-lovers, we found a few areas where the binding shibori threads are still partially tied. See photos.

Square neck line, inner ties to keep the hemline straight, and a hidden pocket on the right front panel (see white silk tucked in the pocket in one of the photos.)

Michiyuki are a narrow garment, fastened with snaps that will open if the fit is too tight. (The measurement we give is the jacket snapped closed, so your hips and waist measurement should be several inches smaller than the hips/waist measurement we give.) If you like this michiyuki but need more room, we can convert this to our Japanique Jacket style for $15 more. Just select the option above when ordering. Allow for an extra two days before we can ship. See the video below for a description on the different styles of kimono jackets, and click here to see our other Japanique Jackets

Shibori is "Japanese tie-dye", where an artisan stitches along a stenciled image on the fabric, pulling the threads tightly to create a resist. The fabric is then dyed and when the threads are released, the pattern is revealed. There are dozens of shibori techniques, with the most common these days called kaneko (referring to the spots on a fawn), where an often elaborate pattern is created by hundreds of tiny dots. Kyoto is famous for this kaneko style. Watch the video below to learn more.

Michiyuki were worn over the kimono (which showed at the neck) on chilly days. Michi means "street" and yuki refers to "going out".
