Navy Swirling Clouds Ikat, Vintage Kimono Silk from Japan By the Yard #287
Blue upon blue with wide woven 'lines' of nearly-black blue outlining the puffy swirly clouds. An intricate ikat, not a print, woven of very soft, almost cottony, flannel-like pure silk from Japan. Mid-weight, with body, it's not crisp or sleek at all, closer to 'fluffy'. We think it's handwoven raw silk; the threads vary in thickness creating a lovely semi-rustic warm hand and a bit of texture. There are some slubs including some lighter blue ones like the one in the last photo. This is a true ikat and both sides are just the same. 14" wide, in perfect condition, sold by the full yard. If you order more than 1 yard, yours will be cut in one long piece from the never-used, vintage bolt. 100% Silk. Japan.
