Fabric History/Pedigree: 1980's 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 is a cream color with a sheen; designs are interwoven overlapping rows of 2.25 inches / 5.71 cm round figures; to our eye, these circles resemble open Japanese umbrellas (called wagasa -see pictures HERE), or possibly flowers or even exploding fireworks -- we're inclined to see them as umbrellas); designs are interwoven; Fabric originally for making an under-kimono (nagajuban), or possibly kimono liner; nice quality silk, some drape; good for making scarf or accessories.
