Fabric History/Pedigree: 1930s-50s silk fabric pieces 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; no sheen; print on one side but visible on the reverse; very ragged edged stripes of varying thicknesses run lengthwise; also, there are interwoven tiny stripes of the weft (across-weave); Colors used: grays, light moss-green, grayish blue (light colonial blue), cream and peach color; Also, somewhat different is the fact that the weave creates a slight stretchable quality (pulling down lengthwise); highly distinctive, we've not seen anything quite like this.
Colors: Please use our text color descriptions to complement your sense of the fabric due to differences in contrast and color on different devices.
