Charming flowers such as sakura (cherry) are dyed with itajime technique.
Textile is thin plain silk and has soft touch.
It has a collar covering of silk with Art Deco style embroidery.( The material is jinken(rayon).)

As the photos and the sheet show, this piece is jointed in the sleeve fronts.
Loosened stitches and tears can be seen at the armholes.
There are other tears and holes here and there.
So this piece is no longer wearable.

*'Ita-jime' is the also called 'Kyoukechi'. 'Ita' means 'wood board', and 'jime' means 'sandwich and tighten'. Two wood boards have pattern, which are carved. Textile is sandwiched between two boards, and dyestuff is poured the through the hole of the board.So the carved part is dyed with pigment. Textile can be folded and
dyed, so the large part can be dyed at once. This technique is very old, and had been done from Nara era (717-784). Later this technique was often done on the juban. We sometimes find beautiful red itajime dyeing in the juban from Meiji period. (or early Showa period)
