Bright Rust Camelias Matelasse/Fukureori Vintage Kimono Silk 14" x 25". #4299
Kimono silk that is a bit brighter than typical rust color, but not quite as bright as many Japanese red-orange silks. This fukureori is very textured, not drapey but with a bit of body and stiffness. It's slightly thicker than many kimono fabrics, mostly because of the very dimensional weaving, which is quite intricately woven and is softly bumpy. The camellias and other flowers have some shine, and they play in the light from light to darker. Vintage kimono silk from a former life as a kimono, in perfect condition from Japan.
