Aubergine Leaves Vintage Kimono Silk Pieces from Japan
Stunning deep eggplant purple, drapey silk from Japan. The leaves are entirely created by jacquard outlines, which were then enhanced most likely using the complex Japanese matelasse fukureori technique, sometimes called Kawari-ori or "Change Weave"... which adds subtle puckered texture to the outline of the leaves. The result is stunning! Not shiny, drapey, luscious silk in beautiful condition. Size is 14" x 51"
The back is the same coloration (with the same lovely lighter purple blended areas) but less textured; more smooth. The leaves show up but not as strongly.
