Item Details and Description
Fabric Type: Light-medium weight silk originally for use in making a woman's kimono; fabric is textured due to the weave, and has the feel close to raw silk; Full designs are same on both sides; minimalist use of stylized fruit shapes in groups of two or three; Fabric has interwoven lateral (horizontal) stripes of off-white to gray that are irregularly spaced so doesn't have a typical pinstripe feel to it; the larger fruits are about 5 inches (32.7 cm) at longest; The rendering of the colors of the fruit look much like water-color paintings; Motif colors for the fruit and leaves are as follow: dark to lighter greens, reds, blues, and mustard tones; very distinctive.
