Purple/Deep Reds Chirimen Crepe Kimono Silk 7" x 57". #4263
The purple-blue background might be a purplish type of indigo, and is so dark it's almost black. The mauve color is dark and muted, the gold highlights are soft, greens are greenish-black, and the reds are all intense and rich; this dark print is magnificent. From a distance it reads overall as deep purply-red-black. Drapey, dry chirimen crepe with a very pebbly surface and no shine at all. Exceptional pure silk in beautiful condition from a former life as a kimono. Japan.
