Blue Full Shibori Vintage Kimono Silk Pieces 13.5" x 41". #4361

  • $32.00

True shibori: tiny, textured squares of white, purple, red and green, on a base of gleaming pale blue-green, misty turquoise, blending to areas leaning towards seafoam. The shibori spots are still quite bumpy, having never been ironed flat. The silk is supple, soft, with some shine.  The nearly sheer white lining is still basted loosely on the back of both piece; they wanted to leave it on for stability in shipping, because the shibori is so light, drapey and supple. Last 3 photos show the easily-removed lining. This stunning pure silk is in perfect condition from its former life as a kimono. Japan.
