Shibori Koinobori Medium Windsock—Circles

Shibori Koinobori Medium Windsock—Circles


Brighten your outdoor space with this hand-dyed Shibori carp wind sock. Hang it on your porch, over your patio or on your outdoor umbrella, and watch it dance in the breeze. The carp streamer, or Koinobori, is flown in Japan to celebrate Children’s Day. My interpretation combines this tradition with the Japanese art of Shibori. I've folded the fabric and dyed it six times in indigo. The carp comes in an indigo-dyed drawstring bag—perfect for gift-giving or storing. 

Please note: Each fish will have a slightly different pattern placement. This windsock is meant to change over time in nature. It will fade when exposed to sun and rain, and the eyes and tails will fray a little. Hanging it in a protected setting, such as a covered porch, will keep the color darker.

This windsock is made to order. It will ship two weeks from order placement.
