Silk Tulle 'Black Leaves' Vintage Japanese Kimono By the Yard #740
Supple, sheer, silk is drapey and lacy, with solid black delicate images of different kinds of leaves. Liquid drape pure silk intended for summer kimono, this is a rare and lovely textile in pure dark rich black. The leaves hardly add any thickness; you can barely feel them at all, but they are opaque. Lightweight, flowy, soft, with a matte finish and a weight of about 1.5 ouces per 14" wide yard. Both sides read and feel the same. This silk feels a bit thicker than typical chiffon and because of its matte hand, would probably be easier to sew - not as slippery or sleek. It's drapey, not fluffy or gauzy. Almost like a high end lace netting, without stretch except on the bias.
Sold by the full yard and yours will be in one piece, cut from the never-used, excellent condition, vintage bolt. 14" wide. 100% Silk. Japan.
