Black with Red Diamonds Kimono Silk by the Yard #942993
True black, crispy, not quite shiny pure silk for kimono, with large, ornate diamonds in two strengths of true red, throughout the bolt. The diamonds are about 7" x 10", the darker one overlaps the lighter, and then there is another group of 2 diamonds four inches away. They appear to be in the weave; the back looks just the same; so this is a very difficult ikat. Closeups are show below. The black is true black despite what your screen may show. It's not red-black and not blue-black; it is black black. There are some slubs, similar to fine silk shantung, but it is also quite smooth and sleek, not drapey. Japan.
14" wide and sold by the full yard. There are 3 large diamonds every 41" of length. Yours will be cut in one piece from the bolt.
