rare vintage odori bolt

In Japanese, odori means dance. This hand-dyed odori bolt is for making a yukata worn by a woman dancing onna odori. The pattern changes throughout the bolt, creating a more elaborate dress. Her apparel would include a traditional straw hat and geta wooden clogs. The flat square bolt is completely unique to me. ARRIVED.
