Black/White Dot-Printed Kimono Silk Piece 14" x 37" #3601
Black and white faux patchwork silk print is a beautiful example of Edo Komon. It's created in a time-consuming process - actually many processes, using rice and/or persimmon paste, paper or metal stencils, and intricate detail with complex resist dying. This technique originated within the samurai classes during the Edo period (1603 – 1868) in Japan. The kimono looked like a solid color from a distance, which was the goal.
It has a light crepe texture, medium drape, and many tiny patterns combined and just barely touching, from the expert dying. The back is much lighter. These pieces were once part of a kimono, and are in perfect condition. Japan.
One piece available, 14" x 37" for $16.00
