Item Details and Description

Fabric History/Pedigree: 1990's, pieces derived from deadstock factory cuts of kimono mock-silk (synthetic) fabric; (Deadstock means old inventory which is like new but has been in storage, never been used).

Fabric Description: Japanese vintage light-weight mock-silk kimono fabric originally intended to make a woman's formal kimono; the background color is dark-plum but also throughout the fabric there are smaller scale, yet subtle, flower designs in the background; these background designs have a slight sheen to them, depending on the angle of lighting/viewing; Vivid, colorful & striking motifs are of larger scale flowers (several different types/rendering of chrysanthemums in clusters, large bamboo leaves, classic stylized pine trees, and clusters of hexagonal shapes; thin-lined burnished gold, as well as sprinkled fields in use throughout;  Wide range of colors used for the motifs, to include: dark teal, dark red, several shades amber, shades of lavender, purple, various shades of green, black and white (Please view close-ups); Fabric is thinner than others in this series (7171-7175), softer, and not of the same quality, thus the reduced price; still a striking presentation.

Since this is from the 1990s, we are not sure, but this shiny gold may be some type of print process not seen in the older kimono fabrics that we specialize in.

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.
