Maple Leaves on Caramel Gold Vintage Kimono Silk 7" x 56" #4635
What a color; somehow the silk is creating its own glow; it seems like layers of different tones all working together, and a unique jacquard on the base silk that adds light-play. It's not orange and not yellow; it's deep gold. Lighter gold speckles like snowflakes in a golden caramel sky, with opaque white and very pale green tiny maple leaves that seem screen printed. Stunning! The color is hard to convey because of its glisten. This lightweight, supple, flowy satin silk has a sleek soft texture. Years ago these pieces were part of a kimono, recently taken apart stitch by stitch, cleaned and ironed for you to re-purpose. To help you judge the scale of the print, the last 3 photos are 14" x 40" or a bit longer. Excellent condition. Some previous seam lines may have creases. 100% Silk. Japan.
