Fabric History/Pedigree: By-yard pieces derived from deadstock 1960's silk roll, originally intended for making a kimono; This bears maker's mark (shown in close-up) "Fukumi Komon" or "Fukubi Komon"; While we found references to Fukumi Shimura, a national living treasure textile-maker, this does not resemble anything she has made, so we're assuming that 'Fukumi/Fukubi' is simply a brand name type of komon pattern. (If anyone knows more about this, please contact us.)

Fabric Description: Medium-weight silk is black/indigo-blue background fabric with designs in dark-aqua-blue having sheen; some very fine metallic (silver) threads seen; These patterns are called komon  type, which means basically smaller size designs; Motifs throughout the fabric are same on both sides: geometric figures with more nested shapes within each figure, including chrysanthemums; (see close-ups); higher quality silk.
 If ordering multiple yards, fabric is shipped in uncut lengths.


Condition: Excellent.
