Bright Red-Orange Matelasse Vintage Kimono Silk 14" x 40". #4425 Fukureori
Japanese matelasse is sometimes known as Fukureori, a complex jacquard with raised, slightly puckered areas that are slightly raised, so that they appear layered. Some of the detail seems like fine embroidery but it's part of the weave. This stunning silk is dyed in rich, bright, saturated oranges and reds, with a bit of gold and green looking slightly rust. It is lush and opulent, with liquid drape, a slight iridescence, and beautiful detail in the fukureori work. It's flowy, extremely supple, sleek and soft. Vintage kimono silk in beautiful condition from its former life as a kimono. Japan.
