Red-Orange / Dark Brown Ovals Chirimen Crepe Kimono Silk By the Yard #JG26601R
Nearly black chocolate brown surrounds bright red-orange ovals enclosing illustrations of mulberry leaves. Those are the only two colors, and they are strong. The orange is brighter than the photos, consistent in coverage (unlike some of the photos - that's a lighting issue) and towards red. The ovals are 3" x 2.5" in size, and arranged geometrically in rows of four across the 14.5" width. There are 12-13 rows per yard, so 36-40 ovals per yard. This flowy kimono silk is very drapey and supple, with a light pebbly crepe texture, dry hand and no shine. The front and back are nearly identical. Vintage, unused kimono silk crepe in perfect condition. Japan.
14.5" wide. Sold by the full yard and we'll cut yours in one piece from the bolt.
