Fabric Description: Japanese vintage silk kimono fabric used to make woman's nagajuban or kimono liner; Lightweight fabric is gradation from both sides to center, going from pink to white; There are large (almost full width of fabric) interwoven five-point leaves (or flowers) done stylistically, purposeful omission of flower, with fields of tiny dots (theme of falling tiny blossoms) bracketing the flower designs; Very hard to see this except up close; same on both sides.
