Stunning Fall-toned print on supple, drapey, perfect condition vintage chirimen silk crepe. The colors are perfect together, with lovely contrast in the purples, blues, greens, golds and blues. The blue waves are almost black. There are areas of metallic silver, probably added by hand with stencils after the rest of the print was done. Flowy, drapey, supple vintage silk crepe with a dry, not shiny matte finish and a crepe texture, in pristine condition from its former life as pieces of a kimono. Japan. 

Signifying power and resilience, the seigaiha or wave is a pattern of layered concentric circles creating arches. The shapes are symbolic of waves or water and also represent surges of good luck. This very old traditional Japanese design has been used as a symbol on clothing, particularly kimonos such as the one this fabric came from, for over a thousand years.
