Vintage Tsumugi is slubby and very soft, with a complex double ikat weave in bright white, true black, and gray. Rows of rectangles, diamonds, bars and and scrolls run symmetrically through the bolt, all done in the weave using traditional, time consuming true Tsumugi ikat techniques. Clearly this was created by expert artisans; the crossdye is gorgeous and the ikat exceptional. And so so soft, as soft as only pure silk can be. No shine, no drape, and a bit crispy, with body. Handwoven decades ago and carefully stored, it's thin, light and strong.  14.75" wide 100% silk is in excellent condition and sold by the full yard. We'll cut yours from the vintage, never used bolt. The portion with the labels has sold.  Japan
