Petals Light Bright Vintage Japanese Tango Chirimen Silk by the Yard. #DS621-6
This silk is lighter than most kimono fabric; it was probably intended for lining or for undergarments and is very fine and soft. Liquid drape, very flowy and supple, with a charming vintage print. This is a Tango Chirimen, one of the finest silks in the world; the utmost care and skill is taken in every step. The crepe texture is very fine and the drape and silkiness is extreme. The color is vivid pinky peachy coral, with very pale, almost white mint green. (not pure white). This silk is about 60 years old but has been carefully loved and stored and is in mint condition. This one is a treasure! Japan.
