Dark Eggplant Tiny Ecru Leaves Vintage Chirimen Crepe Kimono Silk 13" x 14" #4126
Hard to find dark rich purple, with thousands of tiny rounded leaves in ecru and palest lilac. This chirimen crepe has liquid drape, is supple and flowy with no shine at all and a pebbly texture from the crepe weave. It has a dry hand and is very soft. The leaves are about 1/4" long. The back does show the print but with less detail and more ecru. This chirimen silk was once part of a kimono and is in perfect condition. Japan.
