This vintage Japanese silk is true meisen, a difficult ikat technique that results in edges that mix the colors together, so that the red dots are 'outlined' in dark purplish red. This crispy, lightweight, smooth silk has a bit of shine, and an imperfection in the weave; one thread off-register through the center, clear in the photos. It has more body than drape. Front and back are the same in this true ikat. The colors and design are vivid and unique; very alive. It's probably quite old...1930's? Bright royal blue purple, bright red and almost-white gray. The spots are about 2" across. 

14-1/4" wide. Sold by the full yard. We'll cut yours in one piece from the bolt.
