Fabric History/Pedigree:  Deadstock cotton from a roll, a type of cotton used for making summer kimono called yukata, for daily summer wear.

Fabric Description: Lightweight cotton, slightly translucent, originally intended to make a daily-wear kimono (yukata); This piece has the fuzzy edged motifs and lines evocative of Kasuri-ikat, as well as having very large-scale designs which are seen in the Meisen silks of this same period;

The solid fields are an earth-tone-green (sort of a light olive-green color) and tangerine, with other designs and backgrounds in burgundy-red, grays, blacks, and tans;   the daisy flower designs are about 10 inches / 25.4 cm in diameter; the fabric is the same on both sides; fabric is slightly stiff and will soften with washing.

Condition: Excellent.
Orders of more than 1 yard are sent in uncut lengths.
