Hexagon Dancers Jacquard Fukureori, Rust Vintage Kimono Silk 9" x 14" #4273
Rich and deep but not quite bright rust color, with a lyrical geometric fukureori jacquard that looks almost like embroidery. Hexagons interlock, and the six slim flower petals inside seem to be alive. Some of the backgrounds have tiny dots that also look embroidered. The light-play with the weave is enchanting, and in person the detail shows up more than most of the photos can capture. Supple, soft silk with medium drape and not much shine. The back is much smoother; the dimension is on the front side. Vintage kimono silk from Japan in excellent condition.
