Only 18 left!

Intricate weave with miniature 'kikko' tortoise shell/hexagons, in black, white and a bit of brown. It reads as warm gray and the selvedges have a touch of navy. The hexagons are tiny - 7 to the inch and each one is perfect. This silk is sleek, lightweight, smooth and soft - the weave doesn't add dimension or texture because the silk fibers are so thin, fine and even. No slubs, no rustic attributes at all. It's woven perfectly.  It's not shiny, just smooth, supple and soft, with a bit of body and some drape. It reminds us of a fine lightweight Italian silk suiting.  All 22 yards only weighs 2 pounds, so it's about 1.5 ounces per 14.5" wide yard. Same on both sides, kimono silk in perfect condition. Sold by the full yard and we'll cut yours in one length to your order, from the vintage, never used bolt.  100%  Silk, 14.5" wide. Japan.
