Black/Black Invisible Homestead Jacquard Vintage Kimono Silk Crepe By the Yard #212
Hard to find, almost plain black Japanese silk crepe. Black on black, supple silk crepe with a nearly invisible, camera-shy jacquard pattern every few inches through the length. The design shows up - barely - as sheen, from the different weaves in the jacquard silk. They are subtle and hard to photograph, but when we turned them purple the detail did show up. (The actual fabric is black!) A home in the forest, clouds, trees, lakes, mountains. The larger designed areas are around 7" x 7", they move from one side of the fabric to the other, sometimes closer to the center, sometimes smaller. High end, deep, true black on black crepe with liquid drape, soft crepe texture, light weight. It is very supple and flowy. Soft and amazing. There are 2 dyed-white circles in the bolt, 7/8" diameter, on the selvedge, designed for the kimono owner to embroider their family crest which would be in the seam allowance. This is often done on more important, heirloom kimono. They are in yard 3 and in yard 8.
Vintage kimono silk in beautiful like-new condition, never used and still on the bolt. 14" wide. Sold by the full yard, and we'll cut yours in one piece from the bolt. 100% Silk. Japan.
