The long standing Kyoto tradition of Tabata Shibori dying method is featured in this chic capelet. Its elongated arms give an elegant kimono like silhouette that flatters the figure. Each piece is meticulously designed/tied by Shibori artisan Kazuki Tabata, before being hand dyed by fellow craftsman Mr.Kimura.
※Due to the manual nature of the dying process, each garment is unique from one another and variations in print and dye are to be expected.
※Due to the dye used, a noticeable scent exists and poses no harm to human health. Scent will dissipate when aired in a breezy area.
※Please note that this item features a raw cut edge, resulting in the curling of the fabric edges.
※This garment is hand dyed and should therefore be washed alone to avoid color transfer.
※Wash in a mesh laundry bag on a delicate cycle, cold water; avoid washing with other light colored garments.
※DO NOT soak and DO NOT hand wash.
※Lay garment flat to air-dry immediately after washing to avoid color transfer.
※Iron indirectly with a protective layer such as a towel between iron and garment.
※Do not machine tumble dry.
※Due to the nature of the material and dye used, there may be a possibility of color transfer through repeated contact with other articles of clothing. This is especially possible when garment has been exposed to moisture such as rain or sweat. Please exercise caution when wearing with white or light colored clothing.
※※ Any wrinkle texturing around various shibori dots/patterns will release with wear and wash as that is the intended nature of the product. To retain that texture, dry garment with dots twisted and secured with rubber bands. ※※
