Fabric Description: This is very thin and lightweight summer kimono silk with,  translucent black background with a most distinctive motif of bright vermillion( shuiro) color - and a few white/pale-blue - lateral strokes that, to us, look like flowing volcanic lava, therefore, characterized as modernistic/abstract;  There are also very thin one-line edging accents in metallic gold(print process) on random strokes; motif designs on one side; please view close-ups; 

Recommended for making scarf/accessories.
