Crinkled Rose Shibori Flowers Vintage Kimono Silk, by the yard #D102
Liquid drape, flowy, soft, supple and full of white and bright coral shibori flowers. This is a unique shibori because of the lattice design that is dimensional - impressions are quite deep, consistent; a pattern of geometric crinkles and pleats. It's a jacquard weave, with the jacquard sheen, yet it's embossed somehow and is a series of connected deep grooves. It makes this silk even more drapey, even more unique. We've never seen this technique before and we're not sure how it was accomplished but the result is stunning. The shibori work was done over it, after the embossed jacquard. There are so many flowers; there isn't an inch without them. There is no shine; it's a soft, matte finish. This silk is probably quite old but is in excellent condition. The back is very similar with the jacquard crinkles even stronger/deeper on one side. This is an extraordinary shibori that entailed many processes, great expertise and probably months to create.
