Gold / Red / Black Ikat "Plaid" with Birds Kimono Silk by the Yard DS1220-1
Bright golden yellow with red and black 'plaid lines', birds and windmills, in this complex traditional kasuri weave. This isn't a print; it's all done in the ikat/kasuri weave. The bright yellow is cross-eyed with red silk which comes through as a deeper glow with a slight orange iridescence. This silk is incredibly soft, and tightly woven with soft slubs. It's sleek, slightly shiny and slightly crispy, with body and no drape. It's equivalent to a fine silk shantung. Perfect for pillows, etc. Both sides are the same in this true ikat. Handwoven vintage kimono silk in perfect condition from Japan.
14" wide and sold by the full yard. We'll cut yours in one piece from the bolt, to your length.
