Black/Black Flower Diamonds Kimono Silk Jacquard 9.5" x 50". #4349
This black on black silk has a subtle raised texture and several different jacquards working together. The geometrically arranged diamonds are about 3" x 5" and have black woven flowers within. True deep black silk, very soft, sleek, supple and drapey. It's lightweight and flowy, with some satin-gleaming areas and some matte; the whole design is done in the weave. The camera can't catch the detail, but as the light catches the design, the diamonds are more visible through the black and are quietly beautiful. This is a vintage silk piece that was once part of a kimono. It's been carefully disassembled and is in beautiful condition. There are a few tiny notches on the long edges. Pure silk, from Japan.
