SALE Pastel Soft-Edge Tsumugi Ikat, Kimono Raw Silk by the Yard # 477071
Amazing double ikat with graceful curves of chrysanthemums in soft red-oranges, tangerine and blues, with several shades of gray silk fibers throughout. Leaves are white. The gray changes from darker to lighter tones. This silk is a treasure of workmanship and beauty. Very soft, slubby, raw Tsumugi silk, with lots of flecks of different colors in the weave. The edges are intentionally feathered, as in Meisen, but meisen is usually done with very bright colors, and these are pastels. Being a true ikat, both sides are the same. Not one bit of this silk is a print. A bit of body, no shine, extremely soft, probably quite old and from one of the finest kimono silk weaving workrooms in Japan.
14.5" wide. Sold by the full yard, and we'll cut yours in one piece from the vintage, perfect condition bolt.
