Calm and Balance Lustrous Kasuri Mauve Vintage Kimono Silk/Wool From Japan By the Yard #131
Where are my words for this mysterious textile? The ikat figures in raspberry and blueberry don't show up on the reverse, but all the tiny somewhat sashiko-looking crosses in white, blueberry and raspberry, do. Perhaps a kasuri technique? It must be handwoven, probably quite labor intensive and complex with the various techniques - the result is glorious and very one of a kind even among all our one of a kinds. Thin, mid-light-weight, soft, it seems like pure silk with no wool. It has a slight glisten and a bit of body. The reverse side, also wonderful, is shown in the last two photos. Dusty mauve background is perfect and consistent except for one 12" long area in the 9th yard, which was the outer layer during storage and is a bit soiled with less lustre. Otherwise, perfect. 14" wide and sold by the full yard. We'll cut yours in one piece from the never used bolt. 52% Silk/48% Wool. Japan. Exceptional.
