Fabric History/Pedigree: 1960s 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 fine silk, dark plum-burgundy color, very slightly translucent; slight sheen; print on one side but visible on the reverse; fabric background is what we believe to be of a field of iris flowers; the foreground motif is of large stylized renderings of camellia flowers (white blossoms with green leaves and yellow accent in the center of flowers; The geometric maze-like patterns seen are based on a common maze-like background design seen in older traditional Japanese fabrics, only the scale is quite large; the lines consist of shibori-like white dots and include the ancient symbol for Shinto shrines.

Colors: Please use our text color descriptions to complement your sense of the fabric due to differences in contrast and color on different devices.
 
NOTE: The last picture is intentionally over-exposed (brighter) to better reveal the subtle iris fields background designs, so does not well represent the color of this fabric.

Condition: Excellent.

Recommended for use in making scarves or other accessories.
