Wondrous Gardens on Black Chirimen Crepe Kimono Silk 6.5" x 60" #4309
This extraordinary print reveals more and more details as you look. So many glorious flowers, plum and cherry blossoms, iris, and the deep reds, cinnamon, purples and greens with the black are dramatic but serene. There are gold-flecked windows, hidden birds, perhaps a two wheeled cart by a pond, and much more. The print is lush and beautifully executed. The chirimen crepe is drapey and pebbly-textured, very supple, with a dry hand and no shine. Vintage kimono silk from a former life as a kimono, in perfect condition from Japan. This one is an elegant treasure and its beauty is greater than a camera could capture.
