Dusty Mauve "Reversed" Floral Crepe, Silk Kimono Pieces, 14" x 40" #39302
This liquid-drape chirimen crepe silk from a kimono has a detailed, intricate, lush floral print with a twist: it's made to look like the 'wrong' side of a fabric. The print is soft focus, pale, almost faded, but evenly faded. The result is so sweet and beautiful! The reverse side is even more pale. Classic chirimen pebbly texture from the weave. Dusty purple/mauve background with oranges, blues, and golds, wmany types of medium-sized flowers. All are clearly inspired by the beautiful 'wrong' side of so many Japanese fabrics. This silk is vintage but in pristine condition. Japan.
