Black and white faux patchwork silk print is a beautiful example of Edo Komon. It's created in a time-consuming process - actually many processes, using rice and/or persimmon paste, paper or metal stencils, and intricate detail with complex resist dying. This technique originated within the samurai classes during the Edo period (1603 – 1868) in Japan. The kimono looked like a solid color from a distance, which was the goal.

It has a light crepe texture, medium drape, and many tiny patterns combined and just barely touching, from the expert dying.  The back is much lighter. These pieces were once part of a kimono, and are in perfect condition.  Japan.

Two pieces available, each 14" x 57" and $30.00
