Fabric History/Pedigree: 1960's silk fabric pieces received from traditional Japanese kimono cleaner/reconstructor called Arai-Hari -- see an excellent explanation of traditional Arai Hari by textile expert John Marshall, by click-pushing HERE.
Fabric Type: Lightweight kimono silk; slightly translucent fabric is textured to touch due to interwoven speckles throughout (cannot be seen except under very closeup with strong light); fabric is slightly stiff with a feel close to that of raw silk; has no sheen; fabric is charcoal black with hint of indigo-blue.
Condition: Excellent for its age.
