Description
 
This listing is for one yard of vintage fabric salvaged from a vintage Japanese kimono jacket (haori).

This silk is creamy smooth in a light, light ice blue. An abstract floral is dyed here and there on top of its woven image, echoed elsewhere on the panel where it is not dyed. Very cool, lovely scarf weight 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.

When we find vintage (circa 1950s but could be older or newer by two decades) Japanese kimono or haori (kimono jackets) in less-than-sellable condition due to fading, blemishes, or holes, 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.
