Fabric Type/Description: Bright, Light-medium weight silk originally for use in making woman's spring or summer silk kimono; the background is white but there are lateral bands of different colors running lengthwise (see our first picture); the subtle gradation colorings alternate from white to very-pale-pastel lavender, pale pastel light-aqua-blue, and then to light-mustard; note also silver-white petals abound; The interwoven motifs are of small-scale (komon) cherry blossoms throughout; The petals have more sheen than rest of the fabric,so it presents more brightly than our images show; the fabric is slightly smooth to the touch with a nice drape.

Recommended for making scarves or accessories.

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