Mandarin Ducks Chirimen Crepe Vintage Kimono Silk 14" x 39" #4306
So many little Mandarin ducks in different color combinations. In Japan, ducks are important and symbolize everlasting love, happiness and faithfulness. This silk is lightweight, very drapey, flowy, supple and soft. The ducks are only around 1" in size. The background water is navy. The crepe texture is subtle; not very bumpy or pebbly. The back is mostly white; the print barely shows. Vintage kimono silk from a former life as a kimono, in perfect condition from Japan.
