Item Details and Description

Fabric History/Pedigree: 1960's fabric, deadstock (like new, never used from another era) for use in making higher end lady's silk kimono; 100% Japanese silk of type called Tango Chirimen (Tango means Kyoto(City/Area): to learn more click HERE.); This is a very special chirimen (crepe) type; Received as a full roll; designs shown are continuous.

Fabric Type: Light-weight pale creamy ivory color silk -- the natural color of undyed chirimen (crepe, textured) silk; designs are interwoven so on both sides of traditional stylized rendering representing clouds;.

(TECH NOTE: We have intentionally under-exposed some of the images to better reveal the interwoven designs; our pictures show more milk-white in most images here, but in incandescent room light this fabric is definitely a sort of light ivory in color -- the color of raw silk.)

Condition: Excellent.

NOTE: Multiple lengths ordered will be sent in one uncut piece. We have at least 12 yards in this roll; if you want the entire roll please contact us for a quote (discounted).
