True black, honey and mustard tones, tomato red, green, dusty red. The design seems almost Indonesian, the flowers and butterflies are bold and large.

The butterflies are about 3" x 5" and there are six on this piece, about every 12 inches. This silk is in excellent condition from its former life as a kimono. Japan.
