This beautiful kimono-style swing jacket from East has been made using the pintuck shibori dying technique.
Similar to tie dye, 'shibori' is the Japanese term for dying a pattern into fabric. To make this jacket, thin thread is delicately woven through the fabric and pulled tight to make tiny pleats. The fabric is then wound around a large tapered pole which is lifted into the vat of dye. The dye does not penetrate through the pleats, so once the fabric has dried the thread can be removed, revealing an intricate and irregular pattern that is slightly unique every time.
With an open front, a collar neck and elbow length sleeves this piece is perfect for adding some flowing style to your weekend outfit.
79cm from shoulder neck point to hem.
