Dark Indigo Fire Silk Vintage Kimono Fukureori 9.5" x 51" #4302
This silk is textured from the complex jacquard called Fukureori Matelasse in Japan. Deepest blueberry indigo, with the centers of each focal point blended with deep red/brown colors, probably also from the indigo plant, that seem to glow like fire. The result is beautiful and unusual; dark and elegant. The silk is slightly on the heavy side, for kimono silk, supple, drapey, and textured. The back is smoother and the colors aren't as strong. Vintage kimono silk from a former life as a kimono, in perfect condition from Japan.
