Bamboo Islands in a Satin Sea Kimono Silk by the Yard #471480
Liquid drape lightweight silk crepe/satin in cool silvery gray with a jacquard weave of stands of bamboo. Sandy islands with white blurry borders, more bamboo, rocky areas, and deep red hand-painted flowers. More white and purple hand painted flowers in the silver areas, too. This silk seems quite old - the crepe weave is very fine and gleams with a bit of shine. It's flowy, supple, very drapey and in beautiful condition. The back barely shows the handpainting so is more subdued. Vintage kimono silk from an unused bolt. Japan.
14" wide, sold by the full yard. We'll cut yours in one piece from the bolt.
"...bamboo is a symbol of strength, flexibility, and health. Its strength teaches us to stand upright and its flexibility teaches us to adapt to the harshest circumstances. The combination of these virtues teaches us how to find balance and inner peace in our lives, in turn improving our health."
