Fabric Type: Lightweight silk, slightly translucent; no sheen; print on one side but visible on reverse, the background is black with multiple traditional motifs throughout; Designs of various type flowers; the interweaving laterally (left to right) creates a textured feel, with ragged small stripes horizontally; this creates a more impressionistic look, as well as fuzziness between colors; Colors of the designs are burgundy red to light pink and some fuschia, greenish-blue to dark aqua, and with yellow accents in places (see close-ups).
Colors: Please use our text color descriptions to complement your sense of the fabric due to differences in contrast and color on different devices.
