Black with White Blossoms Vintage Kimono Silk Pieces, 14" x 40" #3867
Strewn diagonally in clusters across the 14" width, hundreds of gold-centered daisies with orange-red maple leaves, plum blossoms and other flowers. Liquid drape silk with a slightly slubby weave that creates a bit of subtle texture. No shine, and this vintage silk is just a bit un-bright; the black isn't rich true black but close; the white is not quite bright either. That said, the colors don't come across to us as faded; just not bright. This silk was formerly part of a kimono, then recently cleaned and taken apart stitch by stitch. Japan.
