Tones of blue, red and gray create rows of diamonds and crosses. This soft silk is smooth and finely woven, and is a detailed, ornate warp ikat woven in yuki tsumugi technique. (See below) It's not at all slinky, shiny or textured. The weight and hand is similar to fine smooth quilting cotton. Pure vintage silk from Japan, probably quite old, in excellent condition. It has some body and no drape, and is a true ikat so it's the same front and back. Would tailor well; great for shirts and other apparel, accessories, pillows and other home uses.

This is a yuki tsumugi. Learn more here:
