Vintage Japanese Michiyuki Woman's Jacket for Kimono Shibori Silk Choppy Seas
"Choppy Seas" - Woman's Michiyuki. Fantastically bold design of white peaks against a crimson red... Each peak shape is slightly different, and their outlines are layered in a way that suggests a crests of a turbulent sea. The whiter lines of dots that create the very peaks suggest whitecaps.. Square neck line, inner ties to keep the hemline straight, and a hidden pocket on the right front panel, see photo with white scarf tucked in it. 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.

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.

Michiyuki were worn over the kimono (which showed at the neck) on chilly days. Michi means "street" and yuki refers to "going out". Material: Silk Length: 29" Width: 50" Wrist to Wrist Body: 44 Waist/Hips Condition: Excellent Vintage.
