A lovely, unused, vintage chirimen silk kimono with a artist signed chayatsuji print.

This bold print is created using katazome a resist dyeing technique in which rice paste is applied to the fabric through a handcut stencil before the silk is dyed. The rich terracotta coloured heavy chirimen silk has a variation of a traditional chayatsuji pattern in black, overprinted in dark blue, green & red which gives it an iridescent quality and bears the artist's signature. The kimono has a white silk inner and spring green bokashi (ombre) silk hakkake (the inner cuff and hem of the lining). 

Chayatsuji was originally the name for a paste resist dyeing technique, but now it refers to the most commonly rendered motif in this method - a tea house with water and flower motifs.
