This silk is rich, deep scarlet red, with a large abstract patchwork jacquard. Within the jacquard patches, some have flowers, leaves and swirls. On those only, there is a small area of bokashi blending from darker tone to none, just in one corner.  It's subtle and beautiful, in a technique we haven't seen before. They're not as strong as the camera makes them look;  they blend gradually and softly, the way a rose petal changes color from lighter to darker. Sometimes they look like an optical illusion in the jacquard, but it doesn't show at all on the back so we think it's hand painted bokashi. The silk itself is opulent and luxurious, with a slight sheen almost like satin, very soft, flowy, supple and drapey. Fabrics like this make us respect Japan's mysterious textiles even more. 14" wide, perfect condition and sold by the full yard. We'll cut yours in one piece from the never used bolt. 100% silk.  Japan.
