Light summer cotton kimono are called a yukata. It is patterned with resist tie-dyeing technique called shibori in Japan. The pattern is ume plum blossoms on a dappled ground.The design is created using three different techniques, the dappled ground is looped-binding called hitta miura and the outline of the plum blossom was made using the ori-nui technique and the centre of the plum blossom uses maki-age method. All very technical but it shows just how much goes into creating these textiles.
