One roll of excellent quality young woman's furisode type silk kimono fabric from the 1980s-1990s Japan; there are 21  different patterns, numbered 1 to 21 on contiguous salesperson's sampler roll.

Designs include the following: Japanese cranes in flight, Imperial Flower Cart, All types of flowers, clouds, traditional wooden Japanese bridges, Japanese pines, bamboo leaves, butterflies, and classic  cursive thin waves; There is substantial use of burnished metallic gold and silver accents of figures (seems applique process) in all panels; fabric has sheen and is light-medium thickness; Our pictures show the full roll and multiple close-ups of 12 of the 21 panels; minimal drape.


 We have been using similar 27 -30 inches (68.58cm - 76.2 cm) kimono fabric pieces to make infinity scarves (as gifts), using ornate fabrics like this with a matching silk kimono liner piece; Good for making scarves/accessories; These panels are truly classic traditional Japanese art designs, and, aside from creative, fashion, or craft applications,  would be suitable for display or framing.

Surely of interest to our Japanophile designers and textile artists & designers out there.
