Only 2 left!

Large birds with colorful long tails fly through the vines and flowers, on glowing almost-bright apricot. Lots of slubs in this handwoven, hand dyed raw silk Tsumugi. It's extremely soft to the touch, lightweight and soft, with a hint of body. The birds and the largest flowers are around 6" across. The peony petals are blends of red-orange. There are birds throughout, about 14" apart. The design was created katazome technique, decades ago. It's a difficult, complex traditional kimono silk-dyeing process, achieved by first hand drawing the outlines in resist rice paste, then dying the orange, then rubbing in the red-orange tones, greens, blue and brown for the leaves, flowers and birds.

Vintage kimono 100% silk in perfect condition from Japan. We have two pieces that were cut from a never used bolt. They are 14" x 77".  $45.00 each.  One of the pieces has 5 birds, the other has four.  If you're first to order you'll get the 5-bird piece which is also a couple of inches longer.
