Mountains in Green Shadow Tsumugi Ikat Vintage Kimono Silk from Japan, Mud Dyed, By the Yard #733
This is an unusual, complex ikat honoring nature... mountains and forests in many blended greens, grays, black and a little tan and red. As your eye processes the images, more detail shows up; streams, hillsides, homes and flowers, large bright green aloe or agave-like leaves. Or ferns? The dark green silk fibers are throughout, making everything seem forested, shadowy and dreamy. We are quite sure this silk tsumugi was dyed with natural dyes including mud, and hand woven. A true ikat, both sides are the same. For silk it's slightly heavy, almost cottony, soft, with no shine, no drape and a little body. It's smooth; no crinkles at all. It's thin but not sleek. Very earthy. The small red areas are more red than the photos show and are a great contrast. 14" wide, sold by the full yard, and we'll cut yours in one continuous piece from the bolt. 100% Silk in perfect condition. Much better than the photos. Japan.
