Item Details and Description
Fabric History/Pedigree: 1960's fabric, deadstock (like new, never used from another era) for use in making silk kimono; 100% Japanese silk; Received as bolt; designs shown are continuous.
Fabric Type: Light-weight textured silk; Full designs are print, with six bands -- each differently decorated -- using mostly the kind of patterns seen on Okinawan Bingata; this is not Bingata (a resist-dyed process) but a print intended to evoke the feel of Bingata; designson one side only.
Motifs: Quite unusual design of six slightly diagonal solid color bands running lengthwise, each band decorated differently with many crest (kamon) motifs within various rectangular shapes; all kinds of flowers (maple leaves, chrysanthemums, cherry blossoms, plum blossoms and bamboo leaves); also, other traditional designs & motifs of other circles with cranes, Phoenix, scrolls, etc (see close-ups)
Colors: Most of fabric is filled with designs but the background is cream color; motifs are in various earth tones, differing shades of olive-green, dark emerald green, rust-red and burgundy and some deep red, plum and rusty orange.
NOTE: Multiple lengths ordered will be sent in one uncut piece.
