Health & Happiness Hexagons Black & White Kimono Silk Small Pieces 6.5" x 13.5" #3784
In Japan, the turtle represents a happy, long life, and hexagons represent turtle shells. In this silk, six-sided tortoise shells are filled with joyous little flowers in black, white and red. The base silk is a glistening jacquard weave with small spots and blossoms, which adds a satiny shine to the front. The print is sharp and clear. The lines of the hexagon-shaped tortoise shells are tiny white dots on black. This silk is sleek, supple, soft and drapey. The back is almost white; the print barely shows. Beautiful condition vintage Japanese kimono silk from Japan.
