'Old Watercolor' Blues / Orange Vintage Japanese Silk Crepe 6.5" x 39" #4612
Vintage Japanese kimono silk in several blues, grays, light greens, brown and orange, all soft and muted. The print feels like an antique watercolor. The orange in the tropical flowers adds contrast to the many blues, some blending into one another. This vintage silk is a chirimen crepe weave, one of our favorites, with quite a strong pebbly, grainy texture, some drape but also some body. Lightweight, flowy and supple with a dry hand and no shine at all. The back side is quite blurry and muted. These pieces were once part of a kimono and are in beautiful condition. Japan.
