Wild Vines Shibori Kimono Silk Pieces, 14" x 40" #3875
Jubilant spring green with wandering colorful shibori vines nested among tiny jacquard fans, and white undyed silk peeking through. The thousands of little fans are just 1/2" across, more subtle than the photos show because they're woven, not dyed. (The camera saw more contrast than our eye can.) They are a bit dimensional and add shine to this gorgeous green wonderland. There are almost-round shibori blossoms here and there, in the same purple, indigo, raspberry and gold. Drapey shibori silk in perfect condition from its former life as a kimono. The back is just as vibrant and all the elements come through, as this is a true shibori with a strong two-sided jacquard. Japan.
