Fabric History/Pedigree: 1980s  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 high-quality silk, not translucent; intentionally mottled/speckled and  textured fabric rendered by weave;  color is a burgundy red but in the interwoven threads there are lighter colored burgundy-red speckles evenly throughout the fabric(in brighter light and ad obtuse angles the speckles can be seen); note the applique embroidered figures that are intricately filled as 4 or 5 adjoined hexagons, with further embroidered intricate designs as the background of the applique; our last picture shows the back of the fabric in a close-up of the applique; these applique figures are just under 6 inches / 15.24 cm at longest dimensions.
Recommended for making scarves or accessories.

Colors: Reminder that colors and contrast differ on different devices, so please refer to our text color descriptions.

Condition: Excellent.
