Cat Tails and Moon, Shibata Zeshin, Kids Leggings

Regular price $34.00 Sale

These kids leggings are made from fabric custom-printed with Cat Tails and Moon, a 19th-century work by Shibata Zeshin; the original is lacquer on silver paper.

To make these leggings, the design is printed onto special paper, and then transferred using heat and pressure to become part of the fabric. This sublimation process creates a soft, breathable, vibrantly colored material.

The leggings are super-comfortable, made of a smooth 82% polyester/18% spandex microfiber yarn with four-way stretch. They have an elastic waistband. Printed, cut, and sewn in USA.

This artwork is called Cat Tails and Moon. So where's the moon to go with the cat tails? Here's the fabric we made to cut these leggings from — so you see there are two moons, both at the top front of the leggings, hiding under the t-shirt.
