hand~dyed shibori on silk


Description of Kimono ~ Shibori Hand~dyed

This exquisite hand-dyed Shibori kimono is made with 100% silk charmeuse.

With this technique, I use various forms of folding, ironing, pleating and stitching the silk, before dyeing the fabric in various dye baths of vibrant, gorgeous colors.

Shibori is an incredibly fascinating technique; whereby there is the calculated element, and then the element of utter wonderment! No two Kimonos will ever be the same. Truly a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Currently all my openings for Kimono commissions are filled until the Fall of 2021. If you would like a Kimono created especially for you in the future, you can always e-mail me. Please click here to be transferred to my contact page.
