  • Fabric Description: This is a 1960s silk piece; lightweight, slightly translucent; the background is a dark-deep  red color but most of fabric is filled with designs that are a medium dark tone of aqua-blue as well as bright-orange  and tans; This motif is very unusual: it is barely recognizable (to our eye) as a Japanese motif; There are palm fronds (or banana tree leaves?) and bananas; also some sort of blossoms as well as what might be seen as water ponds or streams;  Recommended for making scarf or accessory.
