Fabric History/Pedigree: 1960s silk fabric piece 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:  Originally used in woman's everyday kimono;  lightweight Fabric is very textured, similar to chirimen, but the rougher touch is due to the tiny pixels interwoven throughout; Background is cream color, with designs of curlicue lines, floral and vine shapes; This design has a distinctly Western sense to it,sometimes found in the 50s-60s in Japan as fabric makers experimented with different and non-Japanese themes;  fabric has slight drape, recommended for making scarf or accessories.

Condition: Excellent.
