Kyoto Hillside Tango Chirimen Bingata Silk Crepe, by the Yard #DS421-2
Vibrant design in a hand painted chirimen from Tango, a kimono silk area in Kyoto where some of the most beautiful textiles in Japan have been made for centuries. Done with stencils by hand, this is a supple, flowy, drapey crepe with an underlying jacquard that adds complexity to the exuberant print. The background is cream. These bingata silks, with vivid watercolors blending together from skilled brushwork, are getting harder to find and this one is exceptional. It's called Gansai Tango Chirimen Bingata Komon Silk. It's in perfect condition.
14.5" wide and sold by the full yard. Yours will be cut in one piece from the vintage, carefully stored, never used bolt. Japan
