Rainforest Kimono Silk Jacquard Pieces, 14" x 29" #3919
Rich intense colors blended; visions of waterfalls, ferns and jungles. The dark greens and blues seem to dominate. The base silk has a well-hidden jacquard that has various textures, woven birds, other animals, symbols and shapes, so there is a fascinating complexity to this silk. We're sure it took many time-consuming processes and was created by hand. This silk is lightweight, drapey and supple, not shiny at all, more textured than smooth. Back and front look very similar but one side, probably the back, has sharper detail and slightly brighter colors. These pieces were once part of a kimono, now dis-assembled for you to re-purpose. Pure vintage silk in perfect condition. Japan.
