Ten Thousand Fans Crepe Vintage Kimono Silk By the Yard #428
The background color is almost-black purplish indigo, and the small fans are ecru/off-white, with a lovely light-play from the tiny jacquard gleaming speckles. Then every now and again, some of the fans are green. This silk is lightweight, flowy and supple, very drapey, with a fine crepe texture and a dry hand. No shine except for the glimmers from the jacquard that flash in the light. For a crepe it's quite smooth. There is some slight selvedge yellowing and otherwise this silk is in excellent condition. There is no yellowing other than that; if the photos look that way it's the camera catching the jacquard speckles, which is one of the nicest aspects of this silk. 14" wide. Sold by the full yard, and we'll cut yours in one piece from the vintage, never-used bolt. 100% Silk. Japan.
