Thousand Flowers Vintage Silk Kimono Pieces, 14" x 37" #3868
Like a dream, this garden bursts with more and more life and color. Yellows, greens, apricot, purple, spots of red, and highlights of gleaming metallic gold on some of the flower centers. This silk is drapey, not shiny, and is a chirimen crepe with a light pebble texture, smoother than most chirimen crepe. It has a dry hand and the colors are richly dyed. On the back, the print comes through lightly, muted and soft. In perfect condition from Japan, from its former life as a kimono.
