Catalog #: 5697 SOLD
5.11Yds / 4.67m
9 Different Patterns
One roll of excellent quality silk fabric from 1940's Japan, 9 different patterns of kimono on salesperson's sampler roll.
The panel patterns are 13.5" x 20.5" (34.56 cm x 52.07 cm) and designs on one side only -- but mostly visible the same on reverse (inside).
An outstanding example of the type of renewed creativity among the traditional Japanese kimono fabric-makers right after World War II. Designs are traditional, but yet they are quite original, even while holding to classical themes and motifs.
Surely of interest to our Japanophile designers and textile artists out there.
