Fabric Type:  Lightweight kimono silk;  slightly translucent fabric is slightly textured to touch(has similar feel of raw unprocessed silk) and has no sheen;  Background is burgundy-plum with hint of rusty-- rather different tone; Motifs are the same designs  on both sides: "S"-shaped brush-stroke designs, 8 inches / 20.32 cm long, which run lengthwise; These figures are in mustard and a sort of blue-gray.

Condition: Excellent for its age.
