Fabric History/Pedigree: 1960s lightweight 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: Lightweight silk, slightly tanslucent, pinkish-tan color background with interwoven classic diagonal geometric maze (classic one with ancient 'shrine' symbol imbedded); designs one one side only; reverse reveals some of the front motifs; Interesting motifs which are in subtle tones of moss and similar greens, mustard, and some dark-red small flowers also; fabric is slightly stiff so drape is limited; Designs seem influenced more by Western aesthetics, which happened at times in the 50s and 60s after the end of the war (WWII).

Colors differ on different devices so please use our text descriptions as reference.

Condition: Excellent.
