Item Details and Description

Fabric History/Pedigree: 1970s fabric, deadstock (like new, never used from another era) for use in making younger lady's silk kimono; 100% Japanese silk; Received as a partial bolt; designs shown are continuous and on one side; this highly creative modern Japanese abstract design is quite atypical, and almost doesn't look like it's Japanese-designed (IMHO).

Fabric Type: Light-Medium weight textured silk; background color is a dark vermillion with interesting and highly unusual abstract designs using mostly irregularly shaped figures; designs of motifs are suggestive of fans, country scenes, clouds, and water ponds- though highly different from traditional motifs; colors used to render the designs are black, with some instances of green, dark blue, tan and light yellow-mustard colors; the fabric is quite textured as many designs are interwoven; motifs on one side.

Condition: Excellent
