Ocean Waves, Indigo/Purple Vintage Kimono Silk, By the Yard # 472
High seas with lots of waves, and flowers floating in between. We're told this is most likely raw silk, handwoven and hand dyed with indigo. The colors are very dark and sharp. It appears to be an expertly created bingata, with just 4 colors; blue-black, 2 other blues, and purple. It's lightweight, quite slubby, soft, somewhat smooth but slightly "fluffy" and textured, just like raw silk, in an off-white, creamy ecru color. It's not drapey; it has a bit of body, no shine, a very tight stable weave, and beautiful border and fringe if you're first. 14" wide, vintage but in pristine condition. Sold by the full yard and we'll cut yours in one piece from the bolt. Japan.
