Japanese Kimono Crazy-Quilt Silk Crepe Floral Print by the Yard
Vintage, beautiful condition 100% silk from Japan, flowy chirimen crepe, this print is an array of smaller prints gathered together. The backgrounds are water-color inspired. Lyrical design with pale ochre, olive and other greens, blues, rust, purples. Birds and pottery, flowers, other plants, and symbols; many small traditional Japanese images. This is vintage chirimen crepe with a somewhat pebbly surface; not as extreme as some we've seen. No shine and a dry hand with good, not liquid, drape.
14" wide. Sold by the full yard, and we'll cut yours in one piece from the never-used, vintage kimono fabric bolt. Beautiful calligraphy, perhaps the artisans' note, if you're first.
