Rust, orange and olive silk print depicts small picture cards of flowers and birds. Each card has at least one torn corner; unfinished, imperfect, or damaged - all beautiful as we learn from wabi sabi. My friend who owned this says 'in Japan we find imperfection very interesting.' This supple, drapey chirimen crepe silk has a very textured pebbled surface. The back of the silk is mostly dark orange and blurry olive, with the print barely showing through. Dry hand and no shine at all. Vintage kimono silk from a former life as a kimono, this chirimen crepe silk is in beautiful condition.  Japan.
