Copper/Lavender Ornate Floral Chirimen Crepe Vintage Kimono Silk by the Yard # 354
The background blends softly - rich coppery rust tones, lighter and darker. The floral design seems antique; lush and almost baroque, with mostly grayish-blue-lavender, taupe, and peach, with blends of those, and fine black outlines. There are some birds among the flowers. The chirimen crepe is quite deeply textured, so pebbly it's almost crinkly, so the print appears a bit un-sharp. It's supple and drapey, and though it's lightweight, is 'fluffier' than most silks because of the depth of the crepe texture. No shine, dry hand, 100% silk in perfect condition, probably older than most of our vintage Japanese kimono silks. 14" wide, sold by the full yard, pure silk in beautiful condition. This silk is stunning and unique because of the texture and the detail in the print. We'll cut yours in one piece from the vintage kimono silk roll. Japan.
