Water Gardens Crinkle Crepe Jacquard Vintage Kimono Silk By the Yard #348

  • $18.00


We see a meadow after the rain, with tiny white and yellow wildflowers on their own little islands. Crinkly currents in small pools. Large dark lily pads, perhaps?  In different viewing angles, the crinkly rounded-corner diamond shapes look darker than the base weave but they're technically the same silk fibers. Liquid drape silk with a complex weave creating all these elements. It appears the tiny white and gold dots are hand painted; we don't see an exact repeat. The crinkles are quite prominent, and there are several other jacquard styles also, in different levels, so we think this is a true fukureori matelasse, time consuming, difficult and complicated. High end, lightweight, flowy, supple and soft, with no shine and lots of drape. Dark burnt orange, not bright and not quite as brownish as rust. 14" wide, 100% silk sold by the full yard. We'll cut yours in one piece from the never-used, beautiful condition vintage bolt. Japan.
