Fabric History/Pedigree: 1950s-1960s lot that we found in a large batch of liners and other fabrics in bolts, rolls & pieces, received from a traditional Japanese kimono cleaner/reconstructor called Arai-Hari -- see an excellent explanation of traditional Arai Hari by textile expert John Marshall, by click-pushing HERE.
