Happiness Bubble Flowers Vintage Kimono Silk Chirimen Crepe 6.5" x 14" #3973
Classic true pink, with a finely printed Happiness Flower design; all the flowers are floating with tiny gold and white dots as if in the water. The flowers create an almost patchwork look as the design groups them more or less bunched together, and by size. The effect is joyous. This chirimen crepe has a softly pebbled texture but is also fairly smooth, with a dry hand, good drape and no shine at all. The back is mainly pink; the gold dots barely show through. This silk was once part of a kimono and is in perfect condition. Japan.
