Full bolt of Arimatsu shibori indigo-dyed cotton Japan Mid 20th century 13″ x 406″ This is a full bolt of indigo-dyed cotton shibori that comes from one of Japan’s most renowned shibori production centers at Narumi/ Arimatsu, twin towns near Nagoya. In this case, the cloth was pleated along its length and then tied tight. The entire bolt was immersed in dye and the result is this striped and puckered cloth. This was intended to be made into a yukata, or an unlined summer kimono. Full bolts of vintage shibori such as this one are exceedingly rare and difficult to find.
