Wabi Sabi Cards Crepe Kimono Silk Pieces 13.5" x 47" #4003
Rust, orange and olive silk print depicts small picture cards of flowers and birds. Many of the cards have a torn corner; but they are still considered beautiful in Japan, as we learn from wabi sabi. This supple, drapey chirimen crepe silk has a very textured pebbled surface, a dry hand and no shine at all. The back is mostly dark orange and blurry olive, with the print barely showing. Vintage kimono silk from a former life as a kimono, this chirimen crepe silk is in beautiful condition. Japan.
