Paprika Hydrangea Matelasse Kimono Silk Pieces 9" x 57" #3853
Graceful four-petaled flowers with waffle texture inside and layers of raised detail in the geometric arrangement. Rich solid paprika color is drenched with color; very saturated and strong. This is a Japanese matelasse called Fukureori - a complex jacquard weave with many different layers, so that the light creates what seems like lighter and darker paprika. Soft and flowy, lightweight and airy from the dimension, this mysterious silk begs to be touched. On the back, the design also shows but much less intensely. Pure vintage silk in pristine condition from its former life as a kimono. Japan.
