A vintage silk michiyuki with an attractive all-over shibori design of clouds (kumo) in vermillion red on an off-white rinzu silk. The michiyuki would work as a dress-coat or a coat dress layered over a turtle-neck sweater.

A michiyuki is traditional three-quarter length kimono-style travelling jacket. It is designed with a low square neckline to show off the kimono underneath and has a double-breasted front opening that closes with snap fasteners. There are decorative self-covered buttons and a small pocket hidden in the front seam! The michiyuki has a pink, pale-green & white stylized flower print silk lining 

Michiyuki is an archaic Japanese word for ‘travel, journey’.

Shibori is a traditional manual resist dyeing technique in which tiny sections of light-weight silk are bound with thread to produce the design before dyeing.
