Mountain Flight Olive/Persimmon Chirimen Silk Kimono Pieces 7" x 59" #4103
Lush botanicals, farms, homes, and mountains below the crane's flight. The colors are stunning: vivid persimmon and so many greens, golden olive, deepest near-black indigo and green-black peeking through in the background. This is a very textured, pebbly-surfaced chirimen silk crepe with a dry hand and no shine at all. The detailed print was created by hand with persimmon paste and mulberry stencils and plant dyes, decades ago. The back is beautiful too - rich dark indigo and black with splashes of green and gold, hints into the creation of this exceptional silk. Pure vintage chirimen crepe silk in pristine condition from its former life as a kimono. Japan.
