One partial roll of excellent quality silk fabric from 1930's-1940's Japan, 6 different patterns of kimono silk fabric on a salesperson's sampler roll.

The panel patterns are 13" wide x 16.5" long (33.02 cm x 41.91 cm) and designs on one side only -- but mostly visible the same on the reverse (inside); designs are all very small scale; Each design is numbered, 23 to 28; The entire roll has very fine metallic silver designs interwoven -- reticular and floral quality throughout; See close-ups.

An outstanding example of the type of creativity among the traditional Japanese kimono fabric-makers during and right after World War II. Designs have a traditional feel, but yet they are quite original, even while holding to classical themes and motifs; The fabric is roughly textured (Compared to contemporary Japanese silk chirimen.)

Surely of interest to our Japanophile designers and textile artists out there.
