Ten Thousand Mums Matelasse Kimono Silk 10" x 37" #4511
Kimono silk in true vivid orange. This matelasse/fukureori is very textured, drapey, light and supple. Its weave is a complex jacquard that almost looks like embroidery or quilting; the outlines of the petals are raised, and many of the flowers have intricate, tightly woven stitches. Yet the color is all the same and the raised areas aren't shiny, so the mums are somewhat subtle. The back is much less dimensional, more smooth, the same orange color, almost like quilting. Soft and flowy, lightweight, gorgeous vintage kimono silk from a former life as a kimono, in perfect condition from Japan.
