Crossback Apron: Shibori on Organic Linen
Tenkozan: Made on the Mountain collection from the Monastery Stitchery and Dye Studio.
Our crossback aprons are an adaptation of a traditional Japanese design. Unisex and one size, they are lovingly stitched with French seams so they look as beautiful on the inside as they do on the outside. Each apron is tagged with the Mountains and Rivers Chop.
These aprons are unique and one of a kind works of art from the monastics and residents who work in the Monastery Dye Studio. Using traditional Japanese Shibori technique, a manual resist dying technique of tying, sewing or folding and clamping which produces a number of different patterns on fabric, the material is dyed with the natural plant dyes we grow in the Monastery Dye Garden.
We invite you to appreciate the color variations as a reminder of the human touch.
Apron size: height from base hem to top of bib: 34", width at hips: 38"
