Atelier Havier Vintage Shibori Silk and Rabbit Print Handkerchief
This is the first handkerchief in the new Atelier Havier collection featuring vintage kimono Shibori (raw spun silk). Sewn using the same technique as the Signature handkerchiefs using premium threads and embroidered with a distinct first edition makers mark.
Kanoko shibori is what is commonly thought of in the West as tie-dye. It involves binding certain sections of the cloth to achieve the desired pattern. Traditional shibori requires the use of thread for binding. The pattern achieved depends on how tightly the cloth is bound and where the cloth is bound. If random sections of the cloth are bound, the result will be a pattern of random circles. If the cloth is first folded then bound, the resulting circles will be in a pattern depending on the fold used.
