Sedimentation Chirimen Crepe Kimono Silk 7" x 14" #4133
Small details. Jewel tones mixed with cream and ochre, in a 'thousands of dots' print on creamy ivory silk chirimen crepe. The colors are in layers across the width. Some of the tiny shapes are geometric, others more botanical. From a distance they blur and blend. The silk chirimen crepe has a soft pebbly texture, smoother than many crepes. The dying was probably done by hand with stencils and natural dyes, and probably took a long while to complete. These vintage silk kimono pieces are in beautiful condition. Japan.
