Bellflower Vintage Kimono Silk Fukureori 12" x 28". #4175

  • $15.00


Pure silk with an amazing weave called Fukureori in Japan; a type of matelasse jacquard with more dimension and complexity than most jacquard; it almost looks like appliqué, embroidered. Fukureori like this is quite difficult to create. This one is so unique; the  black "peeks" truly look like another fabric beneath cut-out areas of bell flowers. The result is wonderful. Probably from a ceremonial, very special kimono, this silk is in beautiful condition.  Nice drape, even though the flowers are quite pronounced.  Dry hand, matte finish, no shine. Mid-weight, supple silk in perfect condition.   Japan.
