Item Details and Description

Fabric History/Pedigree: 1950's, by-yard pieces derived from deadstock roll of kimono silk; (Deadstock means old inventory which is like new but has been in storage, never been used)

Fabric Description: Very unusual designed Japanese vintage lightweight silk kimono fabric used to make woman's kimono; fabric patterns on one side with embroidery-like threads showing on reverse; Motif is abstract, horizontal threads with small rectangular shapes in lines, symmetrically; Upon close examination there are full use of many colors of the spectrum in very thin threads (see close-ups: last picture is of reverse), but from a distance color is a sort of creamy-gray tone; dominant colors are colonial blue, colonial-green, burgundy-red, yellows, tans, blacks;

This is another example of where Japanese kimono fabric designers experimented with modern, even abstract designs just after the war, during which their creativity had been oppressed by the government (this is our opinion only).

Condition: Excellent.

Note: If buying more than 1 yard, sent in uncut piece.
