US$95.00 plus shipping
One roll of excellent quality silk fabric from 1940's Japan, 12 different patterns of kimono on salesperson's sampler roll.
The panel patterns show designs on one side only -- but mostly visible the same on reverse (inside); Each Panel is numbered using a mix of Japanese and conventional numerals (see last 2 closeups); this use of mixed enumeration indicates the fabric is from 1945 to early 1950s.
An outstanding example of the type of renewed creativity among the traditional Japanese kimono fabric-makers right after World War II. Designs are traditional, but yet they are quite original, even while holding to classical themes and motifs; many of them have fine metallic accent threads as well.
Surely of interest to our Japanophile designers and textile artists out there.
