Dark Blue Ikat Vintage Kimono Silk from Japan By the Yard #395

  • $15.00

Only 12 left!

Slubby and rustic, soft not sleek, probably quite old handwoven Tsumugi.  Symbols of people, chrysanthemums, clouds and currents appear in red, two greens, light blue and gray/white, along the edges and almost as far as the center. The blue is very dark, darker than some of the photos; probably indigo-dyed. There are lots of handwoven slubs and 'imperfections' - this silk is gorgeous and in excellent condition.  A true ikat, both sides are just the same. It's a bit crisp but not at all shiny or slick. The surface is softly textured from the different thicknesses of silk fiber in the weave. It's thin and light.  14" wide.  Sold by the full yard and we'll cut yours in one long piece from the never-used, probably quite old bolt. 100% Silk. Japan.
