Fabric History/Pedigree: 1930's-1960's indigo cotton fabrics; Some of these are from *Arai-Hari (a Japanese specialist who deconstructs old kimonos and resells the fabrics or makes new items); others are deadstock unsold fabrics.

Cultural Note: about Arai-Hari:
*Arai-Hari: Our pieces received from traditional Japanese kimono cleaner / reconstructer called Arai-Hari -- see an excellent explanation of traditional Arai Hari by textile expert John Marshall,by click-pushing HERE.
