This listing is for one yard of reclaimed vintage Japanese fabric salvaged from a kimono or haori.

Such a pretty little fabric. A jacquard silk with a woven pattern of florals and bamboo that just shimmers in the light. On top are painted bouquets of wildflowers in pinks and purples with lovely tealy-blue shaded leaves. At first I thought this might be a synthetic silk but the burn test indicates it is indeed silk.

The standard width of all kimono fabric is between 13" and 14" and each length offered here is at least 36" - some are more generous cuts. Multiple pieces may be available.

When we find vintage (circa 1950s but could be older or newer by two decades) Japanese kimono or haori in less-than-sellable condition, we salvage what we can and offer it to artisans, quilters, crafters, and designers for project work. So the fabric has been previously sewn and though we carefully deconstruct the kimono, previous seam lines, as well as minor blemishes, may need to be worked around or trimmed away.

The inspiring designs, hand work, and the ageless beauty of vintage Japanese textiles make all the extra work so worthwhile.
