Wave Windows Purple/Black Vintage Kimono Silk from Japan By the Yard Oshima? #318
Smooth and sleek dark purple and black silk with a geometric grid of squares and wave symbols. Each window is 2.5" x 2.5", and the waves are virtually identical. The tags are missing but this is most likely an Oshima Tsumugi handweave, beloved in Japan for its lustre, how comfortable they are to wear, how elegant but understated they look, and how long they last. Oshima tsumugi silk is difficult to dye and weave, is luxuriously smooth and has a bit of sheen but not too-too much. Lightweight, thin, soft and smooth with a slight rustle, this silk will be warm to wear in cool weather and cool in warm weather.
100% Silk, 14" wide. Sold by the full yard, yours will be cut in a continuous piece from the never-used, pristine condition, vintage bolt. Japan.
