Fabric History/Provenance: Pieces received from a 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 Description: This is lightweight softer silk, only slightly translucent, dark plum color background with various sized bands, stripes, and pinstripes running lengthwise; 5 metallic gold single pinstripes run vertically, 2 of them border the center 5.5 inches / 13.97cm column that runs vertically and is composed of classic traditional 'asa-no-ha' (Hemp Leaves)Motif; fabric probably from a higher-grade under-kimono (nagajuban); See the noticeable sheen in the center asa-no-ha column, as well as some other small width bands/stripes; slight sheen can be seen in the striped areas; looks the same on both sides; this is softer silk and has fair drape.

Note on our Final Image Above: 

Last image close-up is intentionally over-exposed (brighter) to better reveal the asa-no-ha patterns and pinstripes; as a result, that image is not true to the actual dark plum color.

Recommended for making scarf/accessories.

Colors: Please use our text descriptions to complement your sense of the colors, as color and contrast differ on different devices.
