Rich pure true black chirimen silk crepe originally designed for a formal black kimono, with stunning chrysanthemums clustered into diamonds. Each design of flowers is a bit different in size, color, and technique; most are around 7"- 9" across at their widest. The darker orange is close to vermillion and there is also a lighter hue of peach-vermillion. The blues are dark turquoise, blue-gray, and lighter blue gray. The brown is bronze-kissed, and the green is light olive. Dyed with vegetable dyes using traditional Katazome technique; everything was done by hand and this bolt took many processes to produce. A couple of the larger flowers have hand-applied real gold threadwork embroidered around the petals. Flower-diamonds are in 5 places throughout the 14-yard bolt, so that the design would appear in the correct positions when the kimono is worn. So, there are areas of pure black silk, drapey chirimen crepe with no design. 14" wide, beautiful condition vintage kimono silk from Japan. The bolt is 14 yards long. This is an exquisite silk. 

14" wide and sold by the full BOLT (So, order '1', for the whole bolt of 14 yards.)
