Item Details and Description

Fabric History/Pedigree: 1990's tsumugi (pongee) silk pieces received from a traditional Japanese kimono cleaner/reconstructor (Arai-Hari -- see an excellent explanation of traditional Arai Hari by textile expert John Marshall, by click-pushing HERE. )

Fabric Description:  This is a traditional Tsumugi weave, medium lightweight pongee-type silk that is an interesting blend of colors from lighter mauve to medium purples in gradation hues; There are lateral (weft) bands/pinstripes (1/8th/.125 inch / 3.17mm thick) with wider multi-colored rectangular shapes(just over 1/8th/.125 inch long, spaced every 3/4 inch /19.05mm; Other colors used are blues, pale yellows/tan, and white/metallic silver;  The closeups showing the brocade work occur 3 times in the piece, evenly spaced; fabric weave has characteristic Japanese pongee "bumps", and is slightly stiff; textured to the touch.

NOTE RE: OUR IMAGES -- The second and third pictures show the brocaded mixed metallic lines -- first is a view of the brocade accents from the front and then the back of the fabric.

Colors: Reminder that colors differ on each device so please use our text color descriptions to complement your sense of the look of this piece.

Condition: Excellent.
