Woman’s juban
Silk, cotton (lining)
Mulitple shibori techniques

This shibori juban from the early 20th century is in three colors: pale pink, pale yellow, and green. (The photograph below shows the colors most accurately.) A few accidents are visible, where the resist thread came undone and allowed dye to penetrate where it was not supposed to. The topmost petal on the center left rose above is one such example.  Less work is required if some of the material is left undyed, so the use of three colors is more time-consuming.
