Fabric Description: Light-weight 1930s-50s silk; originally intended to make a woman's summer-wear kimono; fa Designs are classic shibori (tie-dyed) fields of tiny dots used to render the pattern; this motif is a special one, dating back centuries, called asa-no-ha (hemp leaves); note the diamond shapes configured around circles; the interesting aspect of this ancient motif is that it looks different depending on how you look at it -- many different geometric figures appear depending on depth of focus; Designs are same on both sides; slightly textured.
