Item Details and Description

Fabric History/Pedigree: Better quality 1980's fabric, deadstock (like new, never used from another era) for use in making silk kimono; 100% Japanese silk; Received as a full roll;

Fabric Type/Description: Light-medium weight silk originally for use in making woman's spring or summer silk kimono; Very interesting type of interwoven irregular pinstripes fill the background and run lengthwise (see last closeup picture); the color of the fabric is in subtle gradation colorings of off-white, light tan as well as light peach-tan sort of colors (transitions of colors are extremely subtle); we seldom see a traditional Japanese motif quite like this: tall switchgrass with wildflowers and the shaded areas evoke ground fog; the fabric is slightly smooth to the touch, yet the interwoven pinstripes can be felt; slight sheen, nice drape.

Recommended for making scarves or accessories.

Colors: Please use our text color descriptions to complement your sense of the fabric due to differences in contrast and color on different devices.

Condition: Excellent

NOTE: Multiple lengths ordered will be sent in one uncut piece.
