Clamp Dyed Cotton Shibori #12
mid 20th century
This lightweight cotton cloth was originally used as a diaper in Japan. It is Shibori clamp dyed - folded into a series of folds and just the edges dipped in the dye.
Measures 25" x 12.5", but the fabric itself is twice that length. It has been machine sewn to create a tube, ideal for hanging as a display.
Hand wash with like colors in cold water with mild detergent and dry flat in the shade. Some colors may bleed depending.
