KIZOMÉ a.un Scarf “KINGYO”
This one-of-a-kind traditionally crafted scarf was inspired by its name KINGYO (or "goldfish" in Japanese). “Bai-Shibori,” one of the Kyo-Kanoko-Shibori techniques is applied to the fabric, and is dyed one by one, delicately by hand. The technique is to pinch the fabric little by little, winding up the fine threads to dye perfectly. After dyeing, the fabric is characterized by its protruding shapes and can be unraveled. These scarves are made with a unique design with ruffles that resemble the tail fin of a goldfish.
The “KIZOMÉ a.un” series is a fashion item, hand-dyed by long-established craftsman Kiichi Matsuoka, using traditional tie-dye techniques primarily applied for kimono and obi in Kyoto.
