potd - Arimatsu Shibori

I sell this indigo shibori-dyed cotton yukata fabric by the metre ($25/m). It comes from Arimatsu  near Nagoya which has been a centre for indigo cotton shibori since 1608. Most of these haven't been steamed flat after dyeing and still have a wonderful crinkly shibori texture.  The texture will fall out if you aren't careful with washing and drying - or you can iron it out if you prefer.
