In this kimono, both warp and weft threads have been resist-dyed before weaving to produce subtle patterns. Although the patterns are quite standard, they ripple and vary according to the characteristics of this technique, called kasuri in Japanese (but more commonly known as ikat, an Indonesian term). The creation of a kimono with a kasuri pattern requires a great deal of preparation, even though it does not require costly or complicated equipment.
